As part of NCMIC’s long stance of supporting complementary and alternative approaches of healthcare in clinical practice, research and academia, NCMIC founded the NCMIC Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization. The Foundation was initially funded in 2003 through major contributions from NCMIC Group, as well as from donations from NCMIC policyholders..
Since its founding, the NCMIC Foundation has expanded on these efforts with the assistance of NCMIC, organizations/institutions and individual doctors worldwide. The result is chiropractic research funding that is comprehensive, as well as far-reaching.
Since 2003, several million dollars have gone to funding major chiropractic research projects & education, including:
- The University of Minnesota—Center for Spirituality & Healing—Integrative Health & Wellbeing Research Program
- The Dartmouth College Medicare Demonstration Project Changes in Vertebral Artery Blood Flow Following Various Head Positions And Cervical Manipulation
- The Bone and Joint Decade Neck Pain Task Force Project
- Support of advanced educational degrees and fellowships for Doctors of Chiropractic in 26 universities and the World Health Organization
See a complete list of projects.
The NCMIC Foundation also provides grants to dual-degreed Doctors of Chiropractic to increase the number of people who recognize the value of chiropractic in the healthcare delivery system.
