Generally Speaking
Over the past 12 months, a lot has changed for the chiropractic profession in Texas. It took an army of chiropractors from the Lone Star State and beyond working together to achieve our biggest gains in decades. Most of you have heard about TCA’s triumph in the 85th Texas Legislative Session, most notably SB 304. The Sunset bill, signed by Gov. Greg Abbott, not only extends the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE) until 2029, but it also clarifies diagnosis for all doctors of chiropractic in Texas. You’ll find out the implications of this bill, not to mention TCA’s other key wins, at Chiro Texpo ’17, coming up June 9-11 at the Hyatt Regency Dallas.
If you still haven’t made up your mind to attend TCA’s Chiro Texpo ’17, what are you waiting for? It’s not too late to join the 400+ doctors of chiropractic, staff, educators and students already registered for TCA’s annual convention June 9-11 at the Hyatt Regency Dallas. Good news! You can register online through Monday, June 5.
