September 10, 2010 — Oregon Governor Theodore R. Kulongoski recently signed a proclamation declaring October 2010 “Oregon Chiropractic Month.”
The Oregon observance will coincide with National Chiropractic Health Month, an annual nationwide celebration sponsored by ACA. The Oregon proclamation recognizes that “doctors of chiropractic are preventative care providers who focus on the health of the whole person, and have particular expertise in the prevention and care of musculoskeletal injuries.”
The proclamation also recognizes the more than 4,000 Oregonians employed in chiropractic offices around the state. Read the full proclamation here.
Consider approaching your local government about issuing a proclamation to raise awareness about chiropractic, National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) and this year’s topic, overweight/obesity.
A sample proclamation is included in the NCHM Toolkit, as well as step-by-step instructions on how to obtain a proclamation.
