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.
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.
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.
