Remember in college we had an energy, an enthusiasm and unbounding passion to learn and be the best we could be. We knew that if we took all that knowledge we worked so hard for, we could serve our patients and our communities and be rewarded with a great life. We didn’t mind getting into debt with student loans and loans to build, equip and promote our offices because if you did a good job, you’d have no problem repaying your debts and building a nice future.
The big news at FCA National was the historic roll-out of SecureCare of Florida, an independent physician association (IPA) that has potential to be a game-changer for chiropractic in Florida.
