Three DW Scholarships Awarded 

The CLEAR Scoliosis Institute has announced today the three recipients of the DW Scholarship. This scholarship for chiropractic students, named in honor of CLEAR’s founder, Dr. Dennis Woggon, funds chiropractic students’ enrollment in the CLEAR Scoliosis Institute’s online certification course. Chiropractic students Rachel Wetzel, Jonathan Malley, and Andrew Baranski are this year’s scholarship recipients. 

These young adults have distinguished themselves through their passion and commitment to learning about alternative scoliosis treatment while still in chiropractic school. Rachel Wetzel, who will graduate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Florida in December of 2019 states, “I am proud to have visited 18 different structural correction clinics in six different states as a chiropractic student.” 

Recipient Jonathan Malley was personally affected by scoliosis when diagnosed at the age of 12. Malley stated on his scholarship application, “I want people who have been diagnosed with scoliosis to know they can be helped, they are not alone, and they have a bright future ahead of them.” 

Andrew Baranski stated, “My goal is to expose the potential within all humans through the reduction of subluxation. To reach this goal I must be apart of a team on the same mission, and CLEAR certified doctors are that team.”

The 2019 DW Scholarship is funded by generous donors Dr. Tony Nalda, Dr. Collin Hilliard, Dr. Mark Myers, and Dr. Andrew Strauss.
