Historical and exciting development in chiropractic education-Meeting with H.H. Sheikh Manea bin Hashir Al Maktoum

On October 27th, 2013, an historical meeting took place at our clinic.  Members of the World Federation of Chiropractic and the Emirates Chiropractic Association had the honor and privilege to meet with H.H. Sheikh Manea bin Hashir Al Maktoum to discuss the proposal of locating a chiropractic college in Dubai.  There’s currently no institution capable of delivering chiropractic educational program within a 7-hour flight radius of Dubai. Given its central location, stability and infrastructure, Dubai is an ideal location for a world-class chiropractic college and research centre.
