The World Federation of Chiropractic’s Biennial Congress is set to take place virtually this September 23-25, 2021. Various representatives from World Spine Care–including staff, clinical coordinators, board members, and volunteers–are set to participate in the event.
The congress theme, Chiropractic for a New Normal, is intended to “showcase the leading global advances in chiropractic” in a post-COVID world. Speakers from around the world will present the latest evidence for providing quality, evidence-based spinal care that puts the patient first.
Patricia Tavares, World Spine Care Clinical Coordinator for the Dominican Republic, will give a platform presentation on “Distance management of spinal disorders during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond,” based on the peer-reviewed journal article of the same title that was published by World Spine Care and the Global Spine Care Initiative this past April.
