D'Youville College Faculty Present at Chiropractic Conference

Buffalo, New York – March 18, 2013 – Four faculty from D’Youville Chiropractic Department presented at the recent Association of Chiropractic Colleges Research Agenda Conference (ACC-RAC) held on March 14-16 in Washington, DC. Several students and faculty from the department also attended the conference.

The conference is the combination of the Association of Chiropractic Colleges (ACC) meeting and scientific/educational conference, which emphasizes educational structure, administration, teaching, and peer reviewed presentations, and the Research Agenda Conference (RAC), which focuses on the development of scientific knowledge, skills, and attitudes through workshop sessions. The combination of the two programs continues to enhance and nurture the natural relationship between chiropractic scholarship and education.

Through various styles of presentation, including plenary sessions, platform presentations, workshops, and poster sessions, the 2013 conference focused on clinical, basic science, educational research, and the topic of Integration.

“Of our ten faculty, eight are here and four of the faculty are doing posters and presentations,” according to Dr. Kathleen Linaker, executive director.

“Our students are two of six students total from all the colleges invited to assist with the program and have the opportunity to attend our major research conference,” she said.

Julie Marinaccio, assistant director of graduate admissions and Salvatore D’Amato, assessment coordinator in Institutional Research, are also at the conference being held at the Washington Hilton.

This is one of the highest quality and most productive annual scientific and educational conferences in the chiropractic profession, according to the Association.
