May 16, Toronto, Ont. –
There are now less than 12 months until the World Federation of Chiropractic’s
(WFC) Silver Anniversary Congress to be held at the International Convention
Centre in beautiful Durban,
South Africa from
April 10 to 13, 2013.

“Titled Chiropractic
Under the African Sun
this Congress celebrates the first 25 years of the
WFC,” says WFC president Dr. Mike Flynn from the American Chiropractic
Association, “and over and above our usual outstanding academic and social
program, there will be special events attended by prominent leaders in the
profession worldwide.”


A new official history of the WFC and the rise of the
profession since the late 1980s, authored by Dr. Reed Phillips, will be
launched in Durban.
WFC Past President Dr. Louis Sportelli and WFC Secretary-General David
Chapman-Smith will give keynote addresses on the global profession and where it
is going.

In one session, delegates will hear from pioneering
African chiropractors from countries such as Botswana,
the Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana
and Zimbabwe.

“One reason that a group of us from Brazil are registering now,” says Dr. Juliana
Piva from São Paulo,
“is that we don’t want to miss out on the bargain pre-Congress seminars, which
were sold out early and such a success at the Rio Congress last year.”

There are
excellent discounted one- and two-day pre-Congress seminars by leading
clinicians such as  Dr. Lindsay Rowe (Australia – imaging), Dr. Joyce Miller (UK– pediatrics), Dr. Chris Colloca (US – instrument
adjusting), Dr Tom Hyde (US – FAKTR), 
Dr. Kevin Jardine (Canada
-taping and rehabilitation) and Dr. Craig Morris (US – ProGolf workshop).

Social events include a Thursday African Night, a free
Friday Welcome Beach Party, sponsored and hosted by the City of Durban, and the
WFC’s Silver Anniversary Banquet and Dance on Saturday with South Africa’s
sensational all-girl Sterling EQ electric quartet as featured entertainment.

This is your chance of a lifetime to travel to Durban in South
Africa to combine a historic chiropractic
meeting with some touring of the country’s majestic scenery and game parks.
