The first-of-its kind program is united under the theme "Impact Spinal Health" and combines the 14th World Federation of Chiropractic Biennial Congress, the 24th Association of Chiropractic Colleges Research Agenda Conference (ACC-RAC) and the American Chiropractic Association's 2017 National Chiropractic Leadership Conference (NCLC) into one action-packed event.

More than 1,500 attendees are expected to participate in this unprecedented program that features compelling scientific research, global perspectives on the future of the profession and inspirational sessions delivered by the profession's foremost thought leaders and content experts.

"DC2017 promises to be one of the most important and influential gatherings of the profession in history, bringing together the greatest chiropractic leaders from around the globe," said WFC Secretary-General Richard Brown, DC. "WFC is honored to join with ACC and ACA in this unprecedented event."

"ACA is proud to host this cutting-edge conference in our nation's capital," said ACA President David Herd, DC. "Attendees are in for an unforgettable experience that will include unmatched educational offerings and social events that will showcase all that Washington, D.C., has to offer."

"Not only will this first-of-its-kind conference provide doctors of chiropractic with individual opportunities for growth and development," added ACC President David O'Bryon, JD, "but it will also bring together the profession's most dynamic and innovative thought leaders to help advance the latest clinical and scientific research to benefit patients around the world."
