April 13, 2010 — Dr. Michael Flynn, a 1975 alumnus of Texas Chiropractic College (TCC) and an experienced leader in the chiropractic profession, visited the TCC campus, April 7 to speak to interns about being passionate and supportive of their future profession.
Flynn, who currently serves on the board of the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP), shared the story of how he came to the profession of chiropractic. He was inspired by his father, John Flynn, who was also a chiropractor.
John Flynn, a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic, was vital to the licensing of chiropractors in Louisiana, which was the last state to license doctors of chiropractic and formally recognize the profession.
Flynn told the interns how the healthcare bill is important for chiropractic, because for the first time there is language that specifically mentions the profession as well as the importance of wellness and nutrition.
In closing, Dr. Flynn told the interns how important it was for them to educate and get involved with their patients.
