The profession in British Columbia is truly honored to help celebrate 60 years of service and is proud to help host Parker Seminars and delegates from around the world.The BC Chiropractic Association has continued to represent the province’s Chiropractors to the public and insurer’s, as well as levels of government since 1934. On behalf of our members, the Association has implemented programs and developed meaningful relationships with key stakeholders to increase public awareness that include:
- The “Think Twice, Lift Once” campaign in partnership with Workers compensation (WorkSafeBC) and Acklands-Grainger, Canada’s largest distributor of industrial and safety products. This prevention program, which encourages workers to stop and think about their spine, has seen growing recognition year after year;
- The “Pack it Light, Wear it Right” backpack safety program an awareness of prevention focused on youth with the provincial government has also seen a positive reception. In addition to ongoing public service announcements, free backpack safety materials are available to educators and parents to teach their children about the importance of spine care at all stages of life. Our Fall 2011 outreach included over 2,000 schools and more than 1,000 BC Chiropractors;
- The BCCA has been involved in a process leading to chiropractic education BC since 1990. This also included a period of consultation with Parker Chiropractic College we are pleased to note. We are optimistic that the BCCA will be able to report on substantive progress on this initiative in the first quarter of 2012.
