Co-sponsored by the Canadian Chiropractic Association, Celebrating Chiropractic in the 21st Century is the theme of the event, which boasts an outstanding program that’s sure to offer something for everyone.
The event’s keynote speaker is Dr. David Eisenberg. Dr. Eisenberg, the Harvard graduate and internist who is internationally famous for his scientific articles concerning the growth and integration of complementary and alternative medicine in health care, will speak on A Model of Integrative Care Involving Chiropractic and Allopathic Doctors at a Harvard Teaching Hospital.
Dr. Eisenberg currently serves as Director of the Osher Research Center at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Program in Integrative Medicine at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Among the subjects to be explored is the philosophy of chiropractic and health care. One session has three leading authorities speaking on whether the biopsychosocial model should be the philosophical model for all health care:

· Guy Riekeman, DC, President, Life University, Marietta, Georgia, one of the chiropractic profession’s most dynamic and popular lecturers,
