and also a chiropractor, Cheryl Hawk stressed the importance of
enhanced capability for sharing research in chiropractic paediatrics.
sharing of scholarly papers, of research big and small, even of
practitioners' case reports is vital to developing clinical trials and
larger research projects," said Hawk. "The availability of these papers
can have a significant impact on providing the evidence for chiropractic
pediatrics and also making a difference in patient outcomes."
Council chair Lora Tanis welcomed the new development and thanked the JCCP editors and council staff for their "expertise and talents to make this happen."

pediatric clinical education, but is also committed to providing

education, establishing a three-year board certified diplomate in
chiropractic paediatrics, providing superior clinical continuing
education for DCs at its Annual Conferences and Symposiums in the U.S.
and abroad, and supporting research by providing the evidence for
chiropractic pediatrics through the only peer-reviewed pediatrics
journal in the chiropractic profession, providing a platform for the
presentation of research papers at its educational events.
