The FCER awarded the fellowship grants at the foundation's board of trustees meeting in Orlando, Fla. Each year, FCER trustees review applications from doctors worldwide to determine the grants.
"These fellowships are important to the profession and to these doctors since they encourage and nurture chiropractic and health care-related research," Charles R. Herring, DC, FCER president, said. "These doctors all are involved with much-needed research leading to published papers, contributing to chiropractic's evidence-based research needs. FCER is proud to support these outstanding scholars as they add to their educational achievements."
