National Chiropractic Health Month 2016 Kicks Off Oct. 1
This October, doctors of chiropractic across the country will raise public awareness of the availability of non-drug options for pain treatment as part of National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) 2016. The campaign, a response to the U.S. epidemic of opioid overuse and abuse, will use the theme and hashtag #Chiropractic1st (Twitter, Facebook) to encourage the use of chiropractic and other conservative forms of pain management, where possible, before the use of prescription opioid pain medications. A toolkit is available online at www.acatoday.org/NCHMtoolkit for anyone who would like to participate.
Special Savings for New NYSCA Members during October
In Honor of NCHM, the NYSCA is offering a special savings to new members: Apply for regular NYSCA membership during the month of October and receive 50% off your annual dues!*
This is a savings of up to $300!
What is the NYSCA?
The New York State Chiropractic Association is a statewide professional Chiropractic Association, comprised entirely of your peers and colleagues. We have joined together in the promotion, advancement, and defense of Chiropractic. In conjunction with our full time lobbyist, the NYSCA monitors all legislation that affects our profession while working to protect and expand practice rights. Learn More.
Why Should All New York DCs Be NYSCA Members?
"NYSCA membership provides Chiropractors in New York State an unparalleled opportunity to advance their profession, by adding their voice of the unified defense of practice rights, scope of practice and a rightful place among mainstream Health Care." - Jack Beige, DC, Esq., NYSCA Past President
Membership Has Its Privileges
...and one of them is the self-respect a doctor feels, knowing that they are a part of something bigger than themselves, supporting their livelihood with collective energy and pooled resources. Once you become a NYSCA member, you can also encourage your unaffiliated colleagues to take advantage of the NCHM promotion and join the NYSCA. For each a new regular member that you recruit for a full year will in turn receive a ‘thank you’ from the NYSCA in the form of two additional months added to the end of their current membership term. We have even sweetened the pot: there are no limits to how many times you can benefit from this incentive.
To receive your incentive month(s), the new member must list you on their application form as their referring NYSCA member. (You may want to give a partially filled out application form to colleagues you are recruiting.)
If YOU don't support your profession, who will?
