Connecting DCs to Relief Agencies

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) sends its thoughts and prayers to the victims and survivors of the deadly tornadoes that struck the southern and midwestern regions of the country recently. Reports indicate that the storms killed as many as 247 people in six states. Many more have been impacted by the disaster.

The ACA has attempted to reach out to state associations in affected areas to learn more about the impact on the chiropractic profession. At this time, no loss of life has been reported within the chiropractic community; but sadly, some homes and business have been damaged or destroyed.

“My heart goes out to everyone affected by these devastating storms,” said ACA President Dr. Rick McMichael in response to the news. “But I know that the chiropractic community will band together and provide support to colleagues in need during the difficult weeks and months ahead.”

For doctors of chiropractic who wish to donate or volunteer, and to those who may have been affected by the tornadoes, below are useful links to Red Cross and FEMA resources and information.
