ACA Celebrates Its 50th Anniversary in 2013

50th Anniversary

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) was founded in 1963 with the idea of uniting the chiropractic profession with one strong voice to advocate on behalf of doctors of chiropractic and their patients on the national level.

For 50 years, ACA has done just that, opening doors for chiropractic patients in Medicare, the Veterans health care system, the military and other federal programs. ACA has worked with private insurance companies as well, to inform them about chiropractic practice and to advocate for fair and just claims and reimbursement policies. With its media relations program, ACA has educated thousands of journalists over the years, helping to raise public awareness of chiropractic and to dispel misinformation.  All of this work continues today—with the support of ACA members nationwide.

Learn more about the history of ACA by reading the cover story in the January/February 2013 issue of ACA News.
