The National by the Florida Chiropractic Association (FCA) took place from August 27 through 30 at the Hyatt Regency Orlando and shattered all previous records in attendance and expo participation.
During the convention, 3,100 registered attendees and some 400 additional shoppers visited the 407-booth expo. Doctors of chiropractic from as far away as Australia made the trip to take advantage of all that the FCA-sponsored convention had to offer.
Featuring more than 120 class offerings for chiropractors, chiropractic assistants, X-ray technicians and massage therapists, The National is the world’s largest continuing education (CE) event and expo for the chiropractic profession.
CE credits are approved for chiropractic license renewal purposes in 45 states, and the convention also offers motivational and business topics to help attendees address the many challenges of the current healthcare system.
The event called attention to The Patriot Project, a grass roots movement to provide chiropractic care to all active military, their families, wounded warriors, and gold star dependents. Chiropractic care is included in veteran’s health benefits but has not been made readily available for all veterans.
“From start to finish, The National truly addressed the needs of chiropractic professionals and brought together every aspect of the chiropractic community in a dynamic and uplifting experience,” said FCA President Jeff Bos, DC. “We are so fortunate to present an event of this magnitude here in central Florida that is supported by so many from around the country and the world.”
