Dynamic Chiropractic – August 15, 1995, Vol. 13, Issue 17

Centennial Celebration Scheduled for Mexico City

By Editorial Staff
Chiropractic associations in Mexico are celebrating the chiropractic centennial in Mexico City, Oct. 12-14, 1995. The Mexican associations feel it's important to have a centennial celebration on their turf to get the attention of the Mexican media and government. The theme of the congress is the worldwide importance of chiropractic and its interrelationship with other health professions.

The celebration will be held at the headquarters of the Confederation of Mexican Sports,4 of which the Mexican Federation of Sports Chiropractic is a member (along with 68 other sports federations), and is the official body of the Ministry of Education for Sports. The president of the Confederation of Mexican Sports, Mr. Felipe Munoz, who is very supportive of chiropractic, will open the congress.

Dr. Benet-Canut has invited Mexican President Dr. Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de Leon to join in the celebration.

Speakers for the centennial celebration include:

  • Eduardo Henrique de Rose, MD, PhD, president, International Sports Medicine Federation, and director of the Antidoping Commission of the International Olympic Committee. He was a guest speaker at the World Federation of Chiropractic's banquet at the centennial celebration in Washington, DC.
