Keiser University’s College of Chiropractic Medicine Thanks Donors for Support


West Palm Beach, Fla., November 2019 – Keiser University’s College of Chiropractic Medicine (KUCCM) thanks Dr. James M. Cox for his $100,000 matching funds campaign, and associate Dr. Kurt Olding and his wife, Jacqueline, for their $4000 honorarium.

Created to foster chiropractic research, Dr. Cox recently announced a $100,000 matching funds campaign after entering into a formal agreement with Keiser University. As part of the agreement, Dr. Cox will match dollar-for-dollar any donation to the Cox® Fund up to $100,000 a year. The proceeds will provide the KUCCM’s Research Department the opportunity to engage in clinical and experimental research studies into conditions such as spinal stenosis for which chiropractic care shows promise in non-surgical management.

Olding joined colleague Dr. Ralph Cruise, KUCCM’s Attending Clinician in October when the university kicked-off its weekend Cox® Technic Lumbar Spine Certification Course Part II. He and his wife, Jacqueline, look forward to donating the honorarium from a later Ohio State Chiropractic Association presentation to the Cox® Fund.

For decades, Dr. Cox has personally and professionally donated to chiropractic research financially through his textbook royalties, speaking honoraria, and more. He has, on several occasions, also sought matching funds to complete pilot projects that lead to larger research grants and recognition in the spinal literature for the benefits of chiropractic care for spine and spine-related pain.

Dr. Olding also hopes to get funds from colleagues tripling the $4000 donation as he invites others to support the Cox® Fund Matching Campaign at KUCCM.

With experienced leaders including Dr. Michael Wiles, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, Dr. Maruti Gudavalli who instructs and leads research efforts, and Dr. Ralph Kruse who instructs and serves as Attending Clinician, the Doctor of Chiropractic program at Keiser University is a rigorous professional program consisting of ten semesters of study, which are completed over 40 months. It combines traditional lectures with small group learning, weekly conferences and seminars, laboratory and experiential sessions, and clinical training opportunities at a number of sites. All coursework includes case-based relevancy for chiropractic practice as a portal-of-entry profession dedicated to excellence in spine care.
