Don’t Miss These 2013 Summer Chiropractic Events

You know it’s summer when local parents all bring their kids in on the same morning for a chiropractic adjustment. While kids are out of school and excited to have some summer fun, chiropractors will be having summer fun of their own, and hopefully including their families on a few chiropractic centered vacations. I have put together a list of summer chiropractic seminars and events that should not be missed. Choose one, or several, and get reconnected with your colleagues.

Chiropractors and Authors on Planet Chiropractic

It’s been over nine years since Planet Chiropractic began organizing news articles appearing on the website into an archived format. A reporter for a national newspaper recently asked me if I knew how many authors have provided articles to Planet Chiropractic and I didn’t know the exact answer. I estimated it was around 100 that have been published. I decided to do a search today through some author archives and I still don’t have an exact number of authors that have been published but I do have a much better idea than I did before the question was asked. What I discovered were submissions from approximately 70 chiropractic authors, a dozen non-chiropractors, and 14 organizations, including three chiropractic colleges and three national chiropractic associations.

Leadership and Focus with Chiropractor Ian Grassam

In 1997 I had the good fortune to be the student president for the International Chiropractors Association representing the chiropractic campus at CCCLA in Los Angeles, California. One of the highlights of my involvement in student politics was the times I enjoyed talking with legendary chiropractors like Sid Williams, Bobby Braile, Fred Barge, and James Sigafoose. Philosophical chiropractic was red-hot in the Southern California area in 1997 and 1998 (and it is again today thanks to DCS), with events drawing large crowds of chiropractors focused on a mission of serving the planet.
