NWHSU’s Dr. Michele Maiers awarded research funding from NCMIC Foundation

Congratulations to the Wolfe-Harris Center for Clinical Research faculty member, Michele Maiers, DC, MPH, PhD, for being awarded funding from the NCMIC Foundation! This funding will support the study, Active Aging for Spine Health: Development of a Novel e-Health Intervention for Older Adults and Doctors of Chiropractic. The purpose of this project is to validate a model of spine care for chiropractic patients who are age 50 and older. The study will also explore how chiropractors use self-management and on-line health interventions to support the care of midlife and older persons. Dr. Maiers is collaborating with Stacie Salsbury, PhD, RN at Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research on this project.
