FLORIDA CHIROPRACTIC ASSOCIATION’S

COVID-19 RESOURCE CENTER FOR CHIROPRACTORS

Our Community Is Responding


The COVID-19 material produced on a daily basis is overwhelming.  Much of the information is not applicable to your lives or offices and it comes on all topics, from all sources.  The FCA has combined the resources from our strategic partners, law firms, and government websites, to bring you over 80 Resources, broken down by topic, to help you better navigate through these rough waters.


The FCA has been here since 1931 to serve you and we continue to serve during these unprecedented times.  We encourage you to stay attuned to your email inbox and visit fcachiro.org and other websites you trust to stay informed.  The FCA team will remain at work and accessible to members throughout this challenge.  It is a privilege to support you as you in turn help hundreds of thousands of Floridians to move through their challenges in the healthiest possible way.


Enjoy and please make use of the NEW FCA COVID-19 RESOURCE CENTER
