Chiropractic Health Care
The Chiropractic Health Care Section of the APHA (APHA-CHC) was founded in 1995 and has maintained a critical role in public health issues such as wellness, health promotion and disease prevention in the context of chiropractic policies and practices.
Public health represents the efforts made by a society to protect, promote and restore health. Public health supports clean water, clean air and safe communities—certainly something all doctors of chiropractic already support. Public health also supports prevention and health promotion—and we certainly support that! Why should we go further than supporting public health in principle—and make the effort to join with our communities to actively support it? First, we can increase our impact on society by adding our skills and knowledge to those of the rest of the public health community; this is one of our main responsibilities as health care professionals. Second, we can help our individual patients even more by utilizing the extant information on prevention and health promotion. Third, we can help members of the public health community understand how chiropractic supports health and wellness.
Involvement in the APHA-CHC offers all the above benefits plus more.
We look forward to welcoming you to the APHA-CHC.
