"As a Council motivated by innovation and a focus on substance, we felt a change in format might help the learning process," said ICA Pediatrics Council Chair Dr. Maxine McMullen.
"We decided to focus heavily on specific areas, rather than just have several different topics.
Also, we felt it was time for our Diplomates to start taking an active role in this important educational program.
Their education, clinical experience and commitment and belief in what they do shone through, and I believe that was infectious and encouraging to everyone who heard them."
In welcoming the attendees, Dr. McMullen
reminded the group that it was the International Chiropractors Association
that started the momentum and interest in pediatric education with its first conference in San Diego in 1991.
"I believe we have made a powerful impact, and we should be flattered," she
said, " because so many groups and individuals are now putting on pediatric programs after we got the ball rolling.
The goal of the Council's conference, she stated, is to continue to offer the doctor of chiropractic the highest quality educational program so that DCs and students who want to significantly improve and expand their clinical knowledge and skills can do so on a continuing basis.
The positive attitude, energy and enthusiasm exhibited by the attendees was continually apparent during the three-day weekend . Everyone praised the program and the wealth of information presented.
The topics were grouped according to subject matter with a wrap-up and question and answer session at the end of each major subject.
The topics on the program included birth and trauma, neurological deficits, instrumentation, special conditions, research papers as well as techniques.
Speakers included Pediatric Diplomates Dr. Liz Anderson-Peacock, Dr. Christine Anderson, Dr. Sharon Vallone, Dr. Jack Manuele, Dr. Kathleen Carten, Dr. Warren Bruhl, Dr. Lora Tanis, Dr. Tracy Barnes and Dr. Maxine McMullen
At the conclusion of the session, at the suggestion of many of the doctors present, Dr. McMullen announced that the Council was establishing a Chiropractor's Hero Fund to raise money for the mother to pay for the father's defense.
