Today’s News in Brief

Advocacy Day: Members Lobby for Increased Coverage of Non-drug Pain Management for Seniors, Military Retirees

ACA members from across the nation gathered today in Washington, D.C. to speak with members of Congress about the need for increased access to non-drug approaches to pain management to help combat the opioid crisis. Nearly 800 chiropractic physicians, students and supporters traveled to the nation’s capital this year to attend NCLC and urge support for pro-chiropractic legislation that would benefit Medicare beneficiaries as well as increase access to chiropractic services for military retirees and members of the National Guard and Reserve. Beforehand, attendees had the opportunity to hear from U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Rep. Adrian Smith at the Legislative Plenary Session. Read more.

PAC Presents Leadership Award

The ACA Political Action Committee (ACA-PAC) held a breakfast meeting this morning to thank its members and hear from political dignitaries, including Rep. Van Taylor of Texas and former Congressman Steve Southerland. The event also included a presentation of the annual F. Dow Bates PAC Leadership Award to Jon Parham, DC, of Takoma, Wash.

Congressional Reception

Following a day of meetings with their representatives in Congress, ACA members convened in the grand foyer of the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill to relax, network and trade stories about their day on the Hill. The event is a favorite among attendees, who catch up with old friends as well as make new ones.
