I’ve always thought of the ICA Symposium on Fitness & Sports as the premier event in chiropractic, and I wish to thank all who contributed to its great success. I hope you can come and enjoy it with us next year and I also hope you’ll consider becoming a member of the ICA Council on Fitness and Sports Health Science. Our new board and executive officers are committed to creating an organization that has a positive impact on the health and fitness of  chiropractors, trainers, athletes and chiropractic practice members.
