Generally Speaking
It’s an election year. As a Doctor of Chiropractic in Texas, the stakes couldn’t be any higher. What happens this fall in state elections could have major ramifications on our success in the 85th Texas Legislature. It’s critical that we find friends to move our agenda forward in Austin. To make this happen, we must elect individuals in the Texas Senate and House who are chiropractic-friendly, understand our credentials, recognize the value of what we do for our patients and believe that Texans have a right to the health care of their choice. How can we do that? Learn how from the TCA President in his report.
