FCA's Chiropractic Day at the Capitol was held last Tuesday and involved chiropractic physicians and students who took time from their practices and studies to visit legislators. Chiropractic Day at the Capitol has been an annual FCA-sponsored event for more than 25 years and is a vital part of the FCA lobby effort. Attendees educated legislators on the need to preserve Florida's no-fault auto insurance system, the need to expand awareness, funding and access to opioid alternative treatments as well as the safety and efficacy of chiropractic for a "conservative care first" approach to patient care.
"The response was terrific, as we heard positive chiropractic experience stories everywhere we went, from staff and legislators alike," said FCA President Jeremy Gordon, D.C. "In this early phase leading up to the session, as the process is just starting, all received us graciously and had a bit more time to thoughtfully hear from their constituent DC's and students."
Big thanks to the FCA lobby team and executive staff for coordinating this opportunity and to all who attended, taking time out from practice and studies to provide that voice from "back home" on a host of issues that impact the chiropractic environment in Florida. And, most of all, thank YOU for your membership and attendance at FCA live/virtual events as well as online learning through ChiroLearn: All of these provide the funds for FCA's lobbying activity that seeks to continually advance and protect your interests.
