SCCA Outreach: Backpack School

Spreading the word that Chiropractors are experts on back health and safety, 12 interns set out on┬áMonday, November 19th 2012 to promote the proper use of backpacks to grades 3, 4, 5 and 6 at Cresthaven elementary school. The SCCA’s first Outreach of this school year was complete success, everything from set-up to the prizes given out at the end went smoothly. The interns did such a great job that some of the teachers even wanted to book appointments through the CMCC clinic when they were done!

A big thanks to Obusform for the donation of backpacks, the CMCC bookstore for discounts on other prizes given out, and a special thank you to the schools principal Leanne for being so supportive of this program.

The SCCA is going to be recruiting interns for the next upcoming outreach programs for children (Backpack outreach and Concussions outreach) and seniors (Fall Prevention outreach). If you want to learn how to promote public health as a chiropractor, please contact us to get involved through our website:

Keep an eye out for updates throughout the year on future outreaches!
