The COVID-19 global pandemic has changed the world. We battled unprecedented times of national crisis with self- quarantine, social distancing and limitations on gatherings. We experienced heroism in our health care system. We face unparalleled challenges, but we’re in this together and are coming out on the other side stronger than ever.
The National by FCA 2020
For decades, the Florida Chiropractic Association has offered continuing education to help meet the needs of the chiropractic community. Year after year, thousands of industry professionals gather in Orlando for “The premier chiropractic convention and expo in the world: The National.” Although this year brings obvious reasons for concern, FCA is moving forward with preparations for 2020 that will include the safest possible environment with proper social distancing and hygiene protocols. The FCA remains committed to providing the very best learning opportunities to the chiropractic profession and will leave no stone unturned to provide a safe environment for you to enjoy. Additionally, there will be opportunities for virtual event attendance this year, offering you flexibility in earning your CEs.
This year, the focus is on helping increase competency, fine-tuning tools, diversifying offerings and adapting to current times. More than 80 internationally-distinguished speakers in the forefront of chiropractic will challenge you to think outside the box and equip you with the tools you need to offer the best care now. Offering the most variety, highest-quality education, latest industry research, networking opportunities and the chiropractic expo everyone loves with the newest products, attendees can find all they need in one place.
The world-class education The National delivers a positive energy among your fellow chiropractors, CCPAs, CAs, LMTs and others in attendance. The synergy of the industry and education create a motivating atmosphere that can be felt throughout the entire convention, in spite of social distancing.
