CMCC Support of PR Campaign Recognized
The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, the nonprofit organization created by Foot Levelers CEO Kent Greenawalt to maximize public awareness of the benefits of chiropractic care, recently recognized Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College for its continued support of the foundation's PR campaign. CMCC has donated $3,000 annually to the campaign since 2009.
"The CMCC community takes great pride in supporting the F4CP campaign," said Dr. Jean Moss, CMCC president. "We believe it is essential to display our dedication to an organization equally devoted to bringing positive attention to the chiropractic community."
"It is very encouraging to have the support of a prestigious organization outside of the U.S. – it confirms the expansive reach and impact of our campaign," added Greenawalt.
