ChiroCongress is excited to announce the formation of ChiroCongress Cares, a charitable nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with a purpose of supporting the chiropractic profession through investment in leadership development, education, innovation, outreach, capacity building, and research.
The founding board members are President, Dr. Don Cross (FL); Secretary, Dr. Gerald Stevens (NY); Treasurer, Barbara Contessa (NY); and Executive Director, Lizz Klein (OR).
Dr. Cross states “We believe it is more critical than ever to develop new funding opportunities to protect, preserve, and advance our profession. Through this charitable nonprofit, we will be able to accept donations, seek federal and foundation grants, and deploy other resources that support our mission which in turn supports the profession. It is imperative that we focus our energies on ensuring our students, doctors, state associations, and industry partners are successful in their endeavors. Creating a charitable nonprofit has been a long-time goal of ChiroCongress and we are excited about how this will increase our positive impact in a really profound way!”
The first initiative under this new organization is to create a relief fund for chiropractors who have been adversely impacted by events beyond their control.
