Most chiropractors don’t enter the profession with the idea of getting into ‘behind the practice’ politics. But, making your voice heard and supporting an organization who will support you can bring about positive changes for chiropractors everywhere. In this episode, Dr. Don speaks with Dr. Chad Mykietiuk, the president of the Canadian National Alliance for Chiropractic, or CNAC. CNAC is an association that focuses on getting chiropractors together, promoting all forms of chiropractic, and to make members voices heard by gathering feedback. Dr. Mykietiuk shares the goals of the association and how it intends to move chiropractic forward in all the provinces of Canada.
After listening to this episode, you will have a better understanding of why chiropractors need to get involved in politics, the difference between a regulatory board and an association, and the benefits of having an association in your area.
