Speaker Showcase

Join us for two dynamic silver sponsor presentations at this annual speaker showcase and a chance to win some great prizes!

Michael Coates – Chiropractic and the Big Squeeze

The Big Squeeze – regulatory mandates, economic pressures, legal challenges, and practice management issues – are testing chiropractors’ ability to not only remain in business but to grow their practice. And it’s aggravated a long-standing problem: the lack of formal training or continuing education focusing on the business of running a practice. Chiropractic associations must find new ways to attract and retain members and support their financial success. Personal Injury Made Easy offers a partnership solution.

Kashif Kahn – Driving New Revenue through Functional Genomics

The personalized medicine wave is here but understanding what tools to use can be challenging. The application of genetics has been made more actionable through functional interpretation. Functional genomic tools now make it very easy for practitioners to create programs through pre-interpreted insights and drives more revenue.
