Chiropractic Seminars for October includes New Beginnings

October 2013 is upon us and it’s time for chiropractors to come together for another spectacular chiropractic event before the holidays begin. I’ve attended New Beginnings in Long Branch New Jersey multiple times during the past decade and it’s well worth the trip, even from the West Coast. This year I’ll be in Las Vegas speaking at Pubcon (as I’ve been doing for about seven years now) during the new beginnings weekend, or I’d probably be there myself. The event features nearly all my favorite speakers in chiropractic.

2012 CCA Annual Convention and Exposition with Parker Seminars

This year the California Chiropractic Association (CCA) has teamed up with Parker Seminars to put on the 2012 CCA Annual Convention & Exposition. The three day conference takes place at San Diego’s Paradise Point Resort & Spa, a 44 acre beach island resort. I’m looking forward to seeing presentations by several great chiropractors and I’m excited to see colleagues again.

Experience the Chiropractic Wave Event

If you’re not busy surfing, hiking, running, and enjoying the beach all summer long, why not plan a trip to San Francisco California for a continuing education event being put on by Life Chiropractic College West? It’s a two day event taking place on August 5th and 6th and it looks like a spectacular lineup of speakers. Life West is located in Hayward, California but the event is taking place Oakland, California (so leave your San Diego Chargers hats at home).

Chiropractor Photos at New Beginnings New Jersey

Glad I decided to pack my heavy Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L lens along with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi camera when I went to New Jersey for New Beginnings this past weekend. As I typically do at chiropractic conferences (and even search engine optimization conferences) I took lots of photos. I have found over the past 15 years, that if I don’t upload those photos soon after they’re taken, they disappear somewhere into the abyss of my hard drives and backup media.

ADHD Drugs Pose Serious Risk to Children

A new study has found that drugs used to treat attention deficit disorders may put kids at risk for of sudden death. The study, in the American Journal of Psychiatry, found an association between stimulant medications (like Ritalin) used to treat ADHD may cause sudden death in healthy children. In the past, there have been published reports indicating warning signs of danger. Last year, even the American Heart Association suggested the initiation of routine heart screening tests prior to starting children with ADHD on stimulant drugs and called for future studies to assess the risk of sudden death. The manufacturers of the drugs are still denying an association, with some refusing to comment to media inquiry.
