Help us raise funds for chiropractic research

At Haavik Research, we want to raise $50,000 for the team at the Centre for Chiropractic Research, at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic, to do what they do best and get these studies across the line! In addition, we are raising $35k per year, per PhD student, so we need all the help we can get.

Please, please, please help us raise $50,000 + $35,000, so we can donate this to the Centre for Chiropractic Research! We can make these awesome studies happen, and grow more PhD trained scientists!

If you want to know more about these studies, or the PhD students we are trying to support, please get in touch with Dr Kelly Holt – kelly@haavikresearch.com

These studies are just too important not to finish!

Ground-breaking studies

These will be ground-breaking studies that are essential for the profession to move forward in our understanding of how chiropractic care helps to improve brain-body communication. They are both ‘first-of-their-kind’ studies.

Encouraging results

The results from these first studies were really encouraging and now the opportunity has come along for the team to go back to Pakistan to complete follow up studies.

The problem is these studies haven’t yet been fully funded. Without the necessary funds they won’t be able to complete the studies.

Sponsor a PhD student

Doing a PhD is such a huge commitment on the finances, on time, on energy, not to mention those poor brain cells!! We want to do something to try to help them ease the burden.

WITH YOUR HELP  – The funds would go to the PhD students to buy them time to do their PhD research.
