Virtually No Excuse Not to 'Engage' This Year

Live and Recorded Education Options Offer Flexibility to Engage 2021 Attendees

Q&A with Engage 2020 Presenters: Dr. Donald R. Murphy

Doctors of chiropractic have an opportunity to play a new, innovative role in the healthcare system.  This new role, the Primary Spine Practitioner, necessitates the establishment of a clear identity and an easily understood means of communicating chiropractic’s value to others in health care. Never has there been a greater need for an efficient, evidence-based clinical approach that enhances our credibility, maximizes our skills and allows us to apply the highest level of excellence in patient care.
