The Florida Chiropractic Association (FCA) invited 20 students from Palmer’s Florida campus to join members at the capitol for "Chiro Day at the Capitol" on Jan. 22, 2019. This annual experience gives Palmer students the ability to observe as bills that directly impact health care and chiropractic care are voted on. Students also met directly with their constituent legislators face-to-face to discuss the importance of protecting and propelling the chiropractic profession forward.
Student American Black Chiropractic Association (SABCA) President, Amber Ball was grateful for the experience. "We had a great time and learned a ton of info regarding the PIP (Personal Injury Protection) vs. BI (Bodily Injury) issue as well as what we, as a profession, are actively doing to combat the opioid crisis. We were also able to spend the better part of the morning lobbying with Palmer Florida Campus President Dr. Peter Martin’s group. Awesome learning experience!"
The FCA Chiropractic Day at the Capitol takes place annually and is a critical lobbying effort.
