CMCC Graduate accepted for WHO internship

December 18, 2008
Dec. 16, Toronto -  Jennifer Nash, a 2008 CMCC graduate, recently learned that she has been accepted by the World Health Organization (WHO) to complete a three-month internship at WHO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. This is a unique opportunity, and Nash, will be the second chiropractic student – and the first ever Canadian chiropractic student –  to be accepted into this program.

During her time at CMCC, Nash was passionate about attending the World Congress of Chiropractic Students (WCCS). She represented CMCC at the 2005, 2007 and 2008 annual WCCS congresses in Denmark, South Africa and Mexico, respectively. At the most recent congress, Nash was nominated, and selected, to represent the WCCS by submitting an application for the intern position at the WHO.

Her application was accepted and Nash will have the opportunity to assist with the preparation of new global guidelines and technical documents related to the training, safety and regulation of manual therapies and guidelines for evidence-based traditional medicine, including chiropractic.

Nash currently practices at The Natural Way Health Clinic in Waterloo, Ontario, but will be taking a three-month leave from January 12-April 3, 2009 to complete her WHO internship. The position is completely unpaid/unfunded by the WHO, therefore the burden of the travel, accommodation and living expenses falls on the interns themselves. Nash would like to thank her biggest current sponsors - CMCC, the Ontario Chiropractic Association and the Canadian Chiropractic Association - for helping to lighten this burden.

Anyone interested in making a contribution to support Nash’s internship position in Switzerland is asked to send a cheque – made out to the “WFC” –  to the World Federation of Chiropractic, Suite 203, 1246 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON M4T 1W5, Attention: Khalid Salim, or contact Khalid with Visa or MasterCard details at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 416-484-9978.

Canadian Chiropractor would like to extend sincere congratulations to Dr. Nash, for achieving this opportunity, and wishes her, and her fellow interns, success in Geneva.
