CCCR and HRSA Announce Research Agenda Conference V

By Editorial Staff

The Research Agenda Conference V: Integrating Chiropractic Theory, Evidence and Practice (RAC V) is set for July 21-23, 2000 in Chicago. The conference is sponsored by the Consortial Center for Chiropractic Research (CCCR), the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), and the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Bureau of Health Professions.

"We're very pleased that this event has developed a reputation as a "must attend" for anyone interested in participating in the scientific development of chiropractic," said William Meeker,DC, MPH, project director for RAC V. Dr. Meeker is research director of the Consortial Center for Chiropractic Research and the Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research, where the consortium is headquartered.

Last year's research agenda conference attracted more than 200 professionals from nearly every chiropractic institution. RAC V will feature nationally prominent scientists, clinicians and administrators from chiropractic and other health professions, interactive sessions/workshops, lectures and small group facilitated discussions. This will be an opportunity to learn more about writing case reports, researching manuscript submission and publication, grant proposal writing/submission, and research project administration. Plenary sessions include:

  • Modeling Chiropractic Concepts: Health, Subluxation, Adjustment

  • Qualitative Research Methods: How Do They Fit?

  • Research Infrastructure and Training: How Are We Doing?

The Consortial Center for Chiropractic Research (CCCR) was established in October 1997 with a $2.5 million grant from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) of the National Institutes of Health. The CCCR comprises nine chiropractic colleges and universities, and is one of nine NCCAM-sponsored centers in the U.S. for the study of complementary and alternative therapies. The CCCR is the first NCCAM to focus on chiropractic research. RAC V is the fifth in an annual series of conferences supported by a chiropractic program established in 1994 by the U. S. Health Resources and Services Administration, Bureau of Health Professions.

Editor's note: Attendance at RAC V will be limited to the first 220 registrants. For more information contact Lori Byrd, project coordinator, at , or at 319-884-5198.
