September 9, 2014 — The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about the value of chiropractic care, has announced that the major chiropractic associations support its latest initiative: Recommend One. The new initiative gained support of the following: Association of Chiropractic Colleges (ACC), International Chiropractors Association (ICA), American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and Congress of Chiropractic State Associations (COCSA).
“It is truly an honor to gain the support of stakeholders within the chiropractic industry,” Joe Doyle, chairman of the Recommend One initiative, said. “As more groups recognize the unmatched potential of our initiatives, such as Recommend One and Athletic TIPS™, it is my hope that more will lend their support. Together, we will advance the chiropractic profession.”
Recommend One is a targeted, cooperative campaign that encourages doctors of chiropractic to recommend a career in chiropractic to patients, family and friends. The campaign was prompted by several industry surveys that confirmed the interest of doctors in recommending chiropractic as a career, as well as the great influence of doctor recommendations. The formal launch of Recommend One occurred during the Florida Chiropractic Association’s National Convention & Expo held Aug. 21-24, 2014 in Orlando.
“It is gratifying to witness all of the national chiropractic organizations getting behind the Recommend One campaign,” Gerard Clum, DC, and Mike Flynn, DC, said in a joint statement. “We are excited about the potential that this campaign brings to our chiropractic colleges and, subsequently, to the entire profession.”
