Healthcare is a big issue, particularly with our new President Elect. We need to meet together to see how we can best be equipped to handle this situation.
Here’s the press release from the conference.
The California Chiropractic Association (CCA) will host chiropractic students on January 24, 2017 at the California State Capitol for CCA’s inaugural “ChiroCon.” The one-day summit is focused on connecting future doctors of chiropractic to the legislative process.
“With healthcare at the forefront of everyone’s minds, it’s important that we create an opportunity for the future of chiropractic to be introduced to our lawmakers and the governing process,” says CCA Board President, Dr. Leslie Hewitt.
Students from the three California chiropractic colleges – Life West, Palmer West and Southern California University of Health Sciences – will convene at the Capitol to meet with lawmakers and also to provide their perspective on the importance of chiropractic in health care. With more than 14,000 licensed California chiropractors and approximately 1,500 students currently studying chiropractic in California; the profession is evolving to meet the demands of people seeking effective, drug-free pain management, a key benefit especially when the opioid epidemic continues to climb.
