Intra-Profession Communications

Purpose

There is one chiropractic profession with recognized and respected specialties, which are understood and accepted internally and externally.
We are One Voice.
Unified Without the Need for Uniformity.

Call To Action

On behalf of the entire chiropractic profession and their current and future patients, we are asking for your support and advocacy as we work together to successfully implement the Strategic Plan! You will want to join the voices of those chiropractic professionals who represent the diverse philosophies and practice styles that make up the chiropractic profession.
