In This Issue:
On August 22, 2012, the DaVinci Group, a grass-roots group of chiropractic organizations, issued a policy statement titled "A Call for Fundamental Reforms Within the Council on Chiropractic Education." The DaVinci Group identifies itself as, "A nationwide coalition of chiropractic professional associations, clinical specialty organizations, research groups, advocacy organizations and individual practitioners committed to excellence in chiropractic education."
The DaVinci Group has held two large-scale meetings in Atlanta and Phoenix where representatives from over 50 groups met to discuss the changes CCE has imposed on chiropractic education by a change in their accreditation standards. You can click here or on the thumbnail to the right to download a copy of the DaVinci policy statement.
The DaVinci Group is continuing to expand as more associations, groups, and individuals join to work toward chiropractic accreditation reform. To add your name or the official endorsement of your organization to this policy statement, please contact the DaVinci Group by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Philosophy on the Farm on September 8, 2012
Once a year in Georgia, chiropractic philosophy is combined with an appreciation for the outdoors and the love of animals. This year's event is co-sponsored by the Georgia Council of Chiropractic, and is one month later than previous years which should make the evening weather more pleasant. Featured speakers for this event include Dr. Fred Schofield and Dr. Gary Walsemann.
This is an outdoor event. This means you need to bring your own folding chairs, tables, and bug spray. For a complete list of what you should bring, and how you should be prepared, please visit the website for this event at www.philosophyonthefarm.com.
How did Philosophy on the Farm get started? Years ago in Florida, Dr. Braile started a yearly philosophy event called Philosophy on the Beach. These events were held on my ocean-front property and included such notable legends in chiropractic who are no longer with us such as Dr. Fred Barge, Dr. Galen Price, Dr. Verne Pierce, Dr. Ian Grassam and many more. Hundreds of DC's and students would show up to these beach-side events for a day of fellowship and fun. When our family relocated to Georgia, I decided to bring this same spirit to my farm. Thus, Philosophy on the Farm was born. The event is FREE. However, donations will be accepted to offset the costs.
