|Chiropractor Appointed by Clinton
President Clinton named
a chiropractor to the White House Commission on Complementary and
Alternative Medicine. The President formed The White House Commission on
Complementary and Alternative Medicine and charged it with making
recommendations on how public policy can maximize the benefits to the
public of what they called "complementary and alternative
medicine". Originally, no chiropractor was named to this commission.
However, in the waning days of his administration, Clinton finally added
the first chiropractor. The fact that chiropractic was included last
is disturbing considering that an estimated 27 million Americans visit
chiropractors each year, and chiropractic is the largest and most popular
non-medical health care field in the world, with more than 60,000 doctors
worldwide. Better late than never!
