Palmer College will have a strong presence, once again, at the California
Chiropractic Association’s annual Legislative Conference, on Tuesday, May 10, in
Sacramento. The West Campus is partnering with the Santa Clara County CCA
district to get students and doctors “on board” for this important annual event
by providing bus transportation to the State Capitol.
The CCA Legislative Conference is a great opportunity

legislators and discuss key healthcare-related issues with individuals involved
in the policy-making decisions that impact the future of the profession in
California. Such decisions can often trigger a ripple effect throughout the

number of West graduates who’ve continued to serve the profession as CCA
officers at the district and statewide level,” said West Campus Associate
Professor Dr. Gary de Wet, who is also the student CCA faculty adviser.
“Palmer is committed to
action that serves our alumni and the profession,” said West Campus President
Dr. Bill Meeker. “We are very excited about our strong participation at the
California state political level, just as we were at the National Chiropractic
Legislative Conference earlier this year in Washington, D.C.”
