Generally Speaking

The Texas Chiropractic Association is pleased to launch the new Texas Chiropractic eSource newsletter – one of the many benefits of TCA membership. You’ll receive each issue every other Friday in your inbox. Our goal is to inform, educate and inspire you while connecting you to valuable TCA resources.

Each issue will be packed with the following:

  • The latest chiropractic news from Texas, across the country and globe
  • Links to relevant content and chiropractic research
  • Articles from leading chiropractic experts
  • TCA announcements, updates and key member benefits
  • A monthly calendar with upcoming TCA events, continuing education seminars and district meetings

This is YOUR newsletter. What would you like to see in upcoming issues? Please email your ideas to Chris Dalrymple, DC, chair of TCA’s Editorial Advisory Committee.

In an upcoming issue of Texas Chiropractic eSource, I’ll share what TCA has in store for you in 2016, including the schedule of TCA-sponsored CE seminars and TCA’s Tour of Texas, a grass-roots initiative to promote networking among DCs across the state and open the lines of communication between your state association and you.

If you have any questions about TCA or member benefits or would like to become a TCA member, please call us at (512) 477-9292 or drop by the TCA office in Austin. Remember, "TCA’s got your back!"
