Chiropractors Direct COVID-19 Response for South Dakota County

Sixty years ago, when E. Wayne Carr, DC, opened his first clinic in Miller, S.D., he practiced by a simple motto that he learned as a student at National from his mentor, Joseph Janse, DC: “Doctor first, chiropractor by discipline.” Today, his three sons, two grandsons and an associate who continue the family’s practice live that vision as they serve as medical directors of the COVID-19 response in their community.

Full House: Delegate Gains Support for H.R. 3654 from Missouri’s 8 U.S. Representatives

ACA Missouri delegate Quinn James, DC, reached a milestone recently in his advocacy efforts on behalf of H.R. 3654, the Chiropractic Medicare Coverage Modernization Act: He managed to get the last of all eight of Missouri’s members of the U.S. House of Representatives to become cosponsors of the legislation.
