New CAM Research Network Established
The Canadian Interdisciplinary Network for CAM Research (IN-CAM) has been established by a five-member
Steering Committee—including CMCC’s Dean, Graduate Studies and Research, Dr. Silvano Mior. IN-CAM’s
mission is to create a sustainable, well-connected, highly trained Complementary and Alternative Medicine
(CAM) research community in Canada that is internationally recognized and known for both its excellence in
research and its contributions to understanding CAM and its use.
The Network will host annual funding competitions for project seed funding and graduate studentships. Its ulti-
mate goal is to develop a programme that becomes a recognized career path for graduate students interested in
social policy and health care. An annual CAM Research Symposium will provide an opportunity for members
in the CAM research community to network, to share results of recent research and to participate in educational
workshops. Membership in IN-CAM is free of charge and may be established by completing a brief question-
naire on the Member’s portion of their website. Please visit for more information.

                         A Preview of the
                    Research Report 2002-2003
Primary Contact is pleased to give our readers a sneak preview of the
Research Report 2002-2003 which will be available shortly. The Research
Report is a two-year summary of research activities undertaken at CMCC.
It provides a close-up look at the work of four researchers—in this case
Dr. Sil Mior’s work into researching collaborative health care models—as well
as a comprehensive list of research projects taking place at our institution.
The Research Report is sent to members every other year and is an excellent
way chiropractors can remain informed and familiar with the latest, cutting-
edge research work being done by the profession.

   Evaluation and Management of Foot,
     Ankle and Lower Limb Disorders
This is a 10-hour seminar over two days designed to provide chiropractors with the knowledge and hands-on skills in
treating some of the more common and difficult to manage lower limb conditions seen in practice.

Day 1 Diagnosing Conditions of the Foot and Ankle

Friday, June 4, 2004 at CMCC
 1:00 p.m    — 1:30 p.m.         Registration

 2:30 p.m.   — 4:30 p.m.         “Hands-on” evaluation and treatment techniques

The Friday afternoon 3-hour workshop will cover the practical components of managing foot and ankle problems.
Drs. Janice Drover and Scott Howitt will ensure a pure psychomotor skill approach so that participants will leave this
weekend with the required tools ready for application on Monday morning.

Seminar Objectives:
This 3-hour presentation by Drs. Janice Drover and Scott Howitt is an exciting two part series.
  1)    It is designed as a “tune up” for chiropractors wishing to refresh their knowledge of conditions and evaluation
        of the lower leg, foot and ankle.
  2)    The session will begin with a lecture presenting current information regarding signs, symptoms,
        evidence-based evaluation and current treatment trends of the lower leg, foot and ankle.
  3)    The presentation will then move to the technique area where participants will work “hands on” reviewing the
        evaluation techniques presented in the lecture.
  4)    The practical portion of this presentation will focus more on evaluation techniques of the foot and ankle rather
        than specific treatment methods.

perspectives of two foot experts - a chiropractor and a podiatrist.

CMCC is proud to announce the launch
  of our newly designed website

After months of hard work and college-wide consultations, our new website is live. CMCC stakeholders now
have better online tools, easier navigation, and greater functionality.
The new website is divided into two main areas. As before, there is a “public section.” Here, anyone on the
Internet may learn about the many aspects of CMCC. Content is consistent with CMCC’s course calendar and
each area of the institution has an area to showcase what they do.
The other space on the website is entirely new. “MY CMCC” is a password-protected space that, once you are
logged in, customizes information to you as an individual user. This area is dynamic and has exciting possibili-
ties for expansion in the future to house such things as online learning and courseware. In fact, the ways we
might use “MY CMCC” in the months and years ahead are already stimulating conversations and imaginations.

                                                 "MY CMCC"
