Mark your Calender for the 2019 ICA Council on Upper Cervical Care Symposium June 6-8 in Denver!
The Conference Committee is continuing the planning process for the 2019 Advances in Spinal Care Symposium. 90% of the speakers are chosen. A call for submitting research papers will be going out soon. The date will be June 6-8, 2019 and will be held in Denver, Colorado, at The Brown Palace Hotel. As it stands, the format will be roughly the same as last year with the addition of the Diplomate Graduation ceremonies at the banquet. The website for registration will be set up shortly and we are actively looking for sponsors and vendors. We will once again be relying on everyone’s help in promoting the Symposium.
Diplomate in Chiropractic Craniocervical Junction Procedures starting soon!
Year one starting in April 2019!
If you are an Upper Cervical Practitioner consider continuing your clinical education with the Diplomate in Chiropractic Craniocervical Junction Procedures (DCCJP), the profession's only postgraduate program that incorporates different upper cervical procedures.
Developed and administered by the ICA Council on Upper Cervical Care, the program takes 2.5 years to complete and provides intensive education in spinal biomechanics, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, advanced imaging, and upper cervical research. The curriculum also includes collaborative learning of the major orthogonal and articular approaches to adjusting the upper cervical subluxation, outcome assessments, integrative learning as well as research writing and presentation. An all-around education!
Dr. Ian Bulow of Cranberry Township Pennsylvania has been elected the new President of the Council.
"I consider it a great honor and privilege to have been elected president of the ICA's Council on Upper Cervical Care. In addition to maintaining and evolving our phenomenal diplomate program, one of my primary objectives over the next 2 years is to expand the impact of each of our many committees. I have learned that we all have a role to play in this life and in this great profession. I look forward to working with new members of the council to help integrate and facilitate their talents and skills for the greater good. Together, we can truly raise the bar yet again and set new standards for our great profession.
Keep TICing my friends, I look forward to connecting with you soon!
Ian Bulow DC DCCJP"
