ACA E-mail Discussion List Sign-Up

ACA's online discussion group designed specifically for ACA DC members is quickly gaining popularity. The listserv empowers ACA members to instantly reach hundreds of colleagues to network and share ideas on a variety of issues. Discussion topics range from national unity, case review systems, portal of entry status for physical therapists, the public's perception of chiropractic, HIPAA, marketing to other health care providers, chiropractic care and children, most recent healthcare research, and much more.

If you are an ACA member, and are not yet on the listserv, don't miss out on this member benefit. This is your chance to voice your opinion. To join the discussion, please review the list policy first:
