The Chiropractic Diplomatic Corps has been invited to participate in the development of the chiropractic profession in India. As part of a “WHO Healthy City Initiative”, Bangalore, India has been identified to reach out to the urban poor with a variety of prevention orientated programs.
Working in conjunction with the Commonwealth Association for Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities, the Chiropractic Diplomatic Corps will procure manpower to be provided in the CAMHADD urban poor clinics of Bangalore. They will also help coordinate the introduction of a chiropractic faculty by cooperation between an accredited chiropractic institution, and the RV Dental College of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences. Issues related to licensure and educational components of advanced standing fellowships and four year degree courses are being discussed. International recognized standards of education will be met.
Dr. Gary Auerbach has taken most of these photos during one of his diplomatic visits to Bangalore in the month of September, 2004. Meetings with officials at Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences and RV Dental College were held and clinical demonstrations and screening protocols in Tri-Sector clinics ensued. Other photos were taken by Dr. Michel Tetrault on subsequent trips.
The Tri-Sector collaborative has written this letter to the Chancellor of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Services. Chiropractors interested in practicing in India are invited to register at the following web location… www.ChiropracticDiplomatic.com/register.
