Chiropractic Inclusion in Public Health Service Programs
Includes a Live Event on 11/14/2019 at 8:00 PM (EST)
Join Dr. Dana Madigan for a webinar that will discuss public health service programs, specifically the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps and National Health Service Corps. The mission, included health professionals, and history of inclusion of those health professionals will be discussed to add context for how chiropractors may also contribute to public health service programs. Specific outcomes, barriers, and additional public health service opportunities will be discussed. This information is directly related to legislation regularly introduced by the ACA in support of the inclusion of chiropractors in public health service programs.
After viewing this webinar, registrants will be able to:
1. Identify the US Public Health Commissioned Corp and National Health Service Corps mission and providers.
2. Discuss how chiropractors can contribute to public health service programs.
3. List challenges for inclusion of chiropractors in public health service programs.
