Chiropractors head to Haiti, Dominican Republic

NEW YORK (AP) — A team of 68 chiropractors from around the country are heading to Haiti and the Dominican Republic for 10 days to provide humanitarian relief.

Many of the chiropractors will be flying out of the country from various cities on Thursday. They include Gary Deutchman (DOITCH-man), vice president of Mission Life International, who will leave with a group of chiropractors from the New York City area.

They will provide chiropractic care for children and adults along with food assistance. The group also sponsors an orphanage for the children of parents who died in the January 2010 earthquake.

Deutchman said thousands of people in Haiti and the Dominican Republic will receive free chiropractic services during the effort.
