May
13, Dallas, TX – Parker College of Chiropractic
announces 2010 chiropractic research grant opportunities for researchers in
private practice or associated with an academic institution. Multiple grants
are available and each will provide up to $5,000 USD of financial aid in
clinical research projects.



For the
past two years, Parker
College has generated
research funds for the profession in order to provide expanded grant programs
and research opportunities. The Second Annual Parker Gala, which was held
during Parker Seminars Las Vegas, is the funding source of the grants. The
purpose is to advance the scientific knowledge of chiropractic and to thank the
profession for the support that has been given to Parker Seminars.
