OCTOBER 21 & 22, 2016

Mark your calendars..

The World Federation of Chiropractic, in association with the ACA Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics, is delighted to host its first seminar on the care of infants and children, two days of inspiration, information and education for chiropractors who are looking to widen their knowledge and skills base in chiropractic pediatrics.

We've designed this seminar around the most sought after topics within chiropractic pediatrics and have three top speakers who will share their extensive knowledge in this ever-popular area of practice.

We also appreciate accessibility so have chosen a location in Quebec that will suit as many practising chiropractors as possible. The Delta Montreal Hotel, in the centre of the city, is a great venue and is close to all amenities, attractions and, of course, great shopping!

Join us on October 21-22 for an energising seminar of learning, networking and chiropractic friendship.

A Narrative Review contest with literature search and written summary will be held in the upcoming months. There will be two categories: one for students and the other for doctors. Dr. Hartman will be providing webinars or conference calls along with mentors to help entrants prepare presentations with the potential to be published and presented at ACC-RAC 2018. NCMIC is providing prize for both categories. First prize is $600, Second prize is $400 and Third prize is $250. More details will be coming very soon.
