National Institutes of Health Funds Chiropractic Institution

The Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research (PCCR) in Davenport, Iowa, received a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NIH is one of eight health agencies of the Public Health Services that is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The Palmer Chiropractic University Foundation will match the facilities construction grant of more than $1.3 million, bringing the total to $2.68 million. The money will be used to renovate and expand the existing center.
The grant marks, "the first time that the NIH has directly funded a bricks and mortar project for research at a chiropractic institution," says William Meeker, DC, research director at PCCR.
