NCMIC, Foot Levelers Partner With F4CP To Help New Graduates

The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress has announced a new collaboration with NCMIC and Foot Levelers, both longtime F4CP supporters, to produce a New Graduate Practitioner Toolkit. The toolkit, designed by the foundation with the financial support of NCMIC and Foot Levelers, "will be distributed to the partnering chiropractic colleges to be given to their graduating students."

"We are thrilled to collaborate with the Foundation on a project that supports chiropractic students," said Mike McCoy, NCMIC CEO. "Upon entering the profession, there is nothing more important than having quality resources and access to an abundance of materials that will help these graduates achieve success."

Added Foot Levelers CEO Kent Greenawalt: "When given the opportunity to support graduating students who are on their way to becoming practicing doctors, we could not be happier to help."

Life University Donates Desks

Earlier this year, Life University donated school desks to support Family Connection and Communities in Schools of Glascock County (FCCIS-GC), a local afterschool program designed "to bridge the gap of unrealized possibilities and unfulfilled potential by uniting our community, connecting resources, and providing support to ensure the success of all children and families."

Life University, which provided the 50 desks in partnership with Communities in Schools of Georgia (CISGA, "the state's leading organization providing drop-out prevention") and Home Depot, became a financial supporter of CISGA last year. CISGA accepted the donation and selected FCCIS-GC as the best partner recipient; Home Depot provided transportation and packing materials.
