NYCC and NYSCA Announce Historic Collaborative Event

 JANUARY 2019, SENECA FALLS, NY – New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) and the New York State Chiropractic Association (NYSCA) announced today the first-ever joint NYCC homecoming and NYSCA Fall Convention to be held September 20-22, 2019 at NYCC’s Seneca Falls campus. The homecoming—known this year as the Centennial Celebration since NYCC is celebrating the 100th year of its founding—and the convention will feature continuing education opportunities for healthcare professionals, guest speakers, networking and social events, exhibitors, and more. Its innovative format will include plenary sessions, panel discussions, and breakout sessions with panelists, promising a rich and varied educational experience for attendees.

Among the speakers and presenters at this unique Centennial event are Dr. Jack Barnathan, who will be giving the keynote speech on Sunday morning (Sept. 22); Dr. Christine Foss, who will be presenting on Sports Medicine; Dr. David Seaman, who will address nutrition; and Dr. Don Murphy, who will discuss primary spine care. Other topics to be addressed during the Centennial Celebration will be acupuncture and integrative health systems. Additionally, as the College has played an influential role in chiropractic and other healthcare professions from 1919 to the present day, some of the school’s educational, research, evidentiary, and historical contributions to healthcare will be examined.

NYCC President Dr. Michael Mestan explains that the collaborative nature of this event will enable healthcare practitioners to take advantage of a one-stop continuing education opportunity featuring some of the country’s top researchers and educators. “The two organizations have worked closely together in the past, and we see this confluence of our Centennial Celebration with NYSCA’s Fall Convention as a natural outgrowth of our mutual educational goals and commitment to excellence in the provision of healthcare services,” he says.

Dr. Jason Brown, current NYSCA President and NYCC alumnus, agrees, adding, “NYSCA leadership and membership looks forward to sharing the beautiful NYCC campus with the Centennial Celebration, and we know that the conference offerings will be relevant, innovative, and productive. We encourage everyone who can make the trip to plan ahead for this unique event.”
