Trip To D.C....

We went to Washington D.C. for the Medicare Conference with the ICA . We hard different experts in medicare industry and where able to hear from five different Congressman and three different Senators. We got to meet with some different senators in there offices and Thank them for there support in the chiropractic industry!! We heared from a congressman in Calif. He taught us how to get involved with our state congressman and women and to get the support we need to get bills passed. It was completely amazing and wonderful . Some were a little boring but most was very informative and amazing to learn about and be involved in the political process. We where able to be in a conference with the 5 main chiropractic organizations with coming up with a united bill we would like to get passed with the medicare Association with adding things that will be covered with chiropractic care ( example : medicare will not cover you with chiropractic unless you get x-rays but they will not cover the x-rays so we are trying to change that!!)Well it was totally amazing ..We where also invited to go to Calif. in June for the ICA elections (but won't be able to go. Maybe next time!) I was able to talk to a board member on the nation ICAA and they where very impressed with the work I have done with the student ICAA at Palmer. We are the only chiropractic school in the U.S. that has the student ICAA up and we have had it running now for over 5o years. We were also able to go see some of the sites it was amazing !!! I have posted

some of our pictures for you all to see.... By the end of it all we where exhausted, our feet and legs
were hurting but we found one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at in our whole lives it was so good!!
