2 -COX FUND @ PALMER RESEARCH DAVENPORT
A fund is established at Palmer Research Center in Davenport to further the research interests at Palmer under the watchful eye of Dr. Ram Gudavalli who is the principal investigator of flexion-distraction studies.
3 - TABLE DONATION IN MEMORY OF SHARINA GUDAVALLI DC
Dr. Ram Gudavalli's daughter, Sharina Gudavalli, DC, passed away in a tragic traffic accident. Dr. Sharina, following her father's footsteps, was involved in writing several papers regarding flexion-distraction clinical cases with Dr. Ralph Kruse and Dr. Jerrilyn Cambron among others. Her talent and calm, patient research skills are sorely missed.
Dr. Cox and Dr. Gudavalli have worked with Palmer to set aside funds for the purchase of The Cox®7 Table by Track Corporation to be placed in Palmer's Outreach Clinic. Dr. Sharina was always concerned for the lesser fortunate. For more information, please click here. Dr. Cox gave the first $1000 and several doctors have followed suit. Your donation is greatly appreciated for both Dr. Sharina and Dr. Ram Gudavalli and family. About 2/3 has been collected as of 8/17/09. Thank you!
