"In my 23-year career, this was the most impressive event at the National Press Club that I have seen. To organize and execute an event where leading MD’s, PhD’s and researchers from NIH discussed the role that doctors of chiropractic can play in eliminating the opioid crisis was remarkable. I commend the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress for their tireless work for the profession and I encourage EVERY doctor of chiropractic around the nation and around the world to watch this event made available to us by the Foundation.”
Jay Greenstein, DC, CEO, Sports and Spine Rehab

"I think every DC should take time to watch this press conference. It's an opportunity to hear non-DC health care professionals talk about the benefits of chiropractic and our role in helping to solve the opioid epidemic. Having been privileged to attend the live event, it was a proud moment for the profession."
Norman Ouzts Jr., DC, Executive Vice President NBCE

"The Washington, DC press conference at the National Press Club hosted by F4CP provided a unique opportunity for patients and medical doctors to speak up about the opioid crisis and the value that chiropractic care brings to help those with chronic pain. The conventional treatments have brought havoc. A new wisdom was given life. There are myths and truth about chronic pain care. This press conference offered an affirmation of concrete recommendations the states, the CDC, and the other federal agencies can and should make policy.
David O’Bryon, President, Association of Chiropractic Colleges (ACC)

"The opioid crisis is setting the stage for doctors of chiropractic to finally make a far larger contribution to our society. It’s historic when the National Press Club brings together non-DCs to publicly communicate the potential savings in dollars and lives we can make with non-pharmaceutical pain relief. Thanks to F4CP for making this possible, and to my colleagues for sharing this very significant message with patients and, most importantly, other professionals.”
Steven Weiniger, DC

"A presentation that emphatically demonstrates the chiropractic profession is not alone in the fight against opioid use for chronic pain. This event not only showed the support for conservative pain management throughout the health care system, but it also provided a non-chiropractic view of what we are up against and the steps needed to evoke change.”
Stephanie Halloran, DC West Haven VAMC Chiropractic Resident
