The ICA Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics will be holding a Building Bridges Symposium in Paris, September 19-20, co-sponsored by the Association Francaise du Chiropraxie. The event will be held at the Melia Paris La Defense hotel, a brand new property that opened in February of this year.
Seven speakers with varied expertise and extensive practice experience will present topics from the role of the gut-brain axis in autism spectrum disorders to tongue-tie and dysfunctional nursing; neuroplasticity and neurological disorders; assessment and mangement of traumatic brain injuries in sports; deformational plagiocephaly, and a host of other clinical topics including technqiue demonstrations. There will also be an update on current pediatric research, a model for multidisciplinary care of the pediatric patient, and learning experiences from volunteer outreach programs in underserved countries.. The program includes 14 hours of excellent education. There will be simultaneous translation from English to French..
"It will be an exciting weekend, packed with vital and interesting information and I guarantee that everyone will leave having learned something new," said Dr. Lora Tanis, chair of the ICA Pediatrics Council. "The Council is committed to clinical excellence and with some of our colleagues in Europe we have put together a program that we feel will be of value to the practicing DC. We invite all chiropractors caring for children and pregnant women to come to Paris this fall and share this learning experience with us. A special thank you to the FCA and President Fleuriau for co-sponsoring this event. We would not be in Paris were it not for their support."
The Council's Building Bridges Symposium is designed to bring chiropractic doctors from differentl countries interested in pediatric and pregnancy care closer together through a quality and clinically relevant educational program.. "We share a common goal," said Tanis, "and that is to provide care that is appropriate, safe and effective. This type of symposium allows us to share and exchange information that can help us achieve that goal and also be significant in improving patient outcomes."
