On September 26, 2018, members of Shapiro Winthers P.C. attended the 4th Annual Well Planned Party hosted by the Chanda Plan Foundation.

The mission of the Chanda Plan Foundation is to provide access to integrative therapy, primary care, and other complementary services to improve health outcomes and reduce healthcare costs for persons with physical disabilities.

Chanda Hinton, Founder of the Chanda Plan Foundation

The Chanda Plan Foundation was created when founder Chanda Hinton’s life was saved by integrative therapies. Per the Chanda Plan Foundation website, Chanda Hinton, “On her deathbed, at a scant 59 lbs. she was desperate to try anything. Through integrative therapies Chanda regained her health and felt more alive than she ever had since that life changing day when she became a quadriplegic. Why in 10 years had integrative therapies not been recommended? Why wasn’t anybody talking about the benefits?  These questions and Chanda’s life saving outcome fueled the start of the foundation and the mission of improving the quality of life for persons with physical disabilities through direct services and systemic change to access integrative therapies.” Learn more at https://iamtheplan.org/history/.
