Chiropractic Journal of Australia : CJA June 2012
Chiropractic Journal of Australia Volume 42 Number 2 June 2012 77 collaboration was very successful, graduating well over 300 graduates over a 17 year period. One of his greatest dreams was to obtain formal accreditation of the program and this was achieved in 2005 when the Council on Chiropractic Education Australasia awarded a 5 year period. The program has maintained its accreditation status since that time. In 2008 the JCA made the decision to wind down the relationship with RMIT as it had successfully developed the experience and expertise to continue as an independent entity, and in 2009 the exciting era of the Tokyo College of Chiropractic commenced. In spite of his ailing health Kazu assumed the role of Vice President of TCC and up until the time of his death was working vigorously to see the college incorporated into the formal Japanese education system. Kazu was a proud father to his two sons who have followed him into a career in chiropractic. His younger son, Yasunobu also graduated from National College in 2006 and his older son, Yoshiaki graduated from RMIT University Chiropractic Unit-Japan in 2009 after working as an orthopaedic surgeon for many years. IN MEMORIAM Throughout his life Kazu worked tirelessly on behalf the profession that he so dearly loved. He never gave up and as recently as a few months ago was meeting with Japanese political representatives in order to establish formal recognition of the profession. For all of his outstanding professional qualities and achievements Kazu will be especially remembered as a kind and overwhelmingly generous man. His willingness to unselfshly share his experience and expertise with his professional colleagues across the globe was renowned. To his staff and students at Tokyo College of Chiropractic he was a gifted educator and mentor. Most importantly he was a family man loved and respected by all including his 3 grandchildren. Kazu Takeyachi will be sadly missed not only by those who knew him well but by the International Chiropractic community who have drawn inspiration from his lifelong work. Kazu will be remembered as a true hero of the profession. Barry Draper BAppSc (Chiropractic), M.Sc. Head, Discipline of Chiropractic RMIT University WIN! WIN! WIN! When professionally conducted, Community Spinal Health Checks represent: a Win for the Community a Win for Chiropractic a Win for the Australian Spinal Research Foundation It is generally accepted that only 12% of the Australasian population have ever visited a Chiropractor. This unique statistic highlights the staggering potential to increase the awareness and usage of chiropractic care as an important contributor to health and wellness in the community. Community Spinal Health Checks provide an ideal opportunity to introduce members of the general public to the benefits of Chiropractic in a safe, professional and non pressured environment. A greater awareness of chiropractic care and its benefits is created with the public, which leads to greater direct participation with the chiropractic industry. Recipients of Community Spinal Health Checks are invited to consider a voluntary donation of $20 to the Australian Spinal Research Foundation. Given that only 12% of the Australasian population has experienced chiropractic care, the opportunity to increase the number of patients visiting individual chiropractic practices within a specific locality is immediately apparent. The Australian Spinal Research Foundation has prepared a kit for conducting Community Spinal Health Checks and is seeking registrations from those practices genuinely interested in conducting health checks in the community to support Chiropractic, spinal research and their practice. Simply call the Foundation on 07 3808 4098 to sign up and have any questions answered. The Foundation is totally committed to ensuing Community Spinal Health Checks are conducted in a professional manner and within the Code of Conduct and guidelines of the various Registration Boards. The Foundation will immediately disassociate itself from any Community Spinal Health Check not conducted within these guidelines.
