Website Section Intended to Raise Awareness about Chiropractic and the Military
CARMICHAEL, Calif. – June 09, 2011 – The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness regarding the benefits of chiropractic care, has launched Military Corner, a subset to its F4CP Web site that is designed to provide exclusive educational information about chiropractic care and the military, specifically referencing the Department of Defense (DOD) and Veterans Affairs (VA).
“With a large percentage of eligible military personnel unable to reasonably access the chiropractic benefit, I applaud the Foundation for seizing the initiative to educate the public on the issues surrounding chiropractic care for our military veterans and active duty personnel,” says U.S. Army Brigadier General Rebecca Halstead (Ret.), spokesperson for the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress. “The new Military Corner allows each of us to understand the improvements being made to date and the challenges which lie ahead.”
Military Corner provides in-depth and topical information including current care integration at military health facilities, policy and accessing rights, DOD/VA news, and the latest developments regarding chiropractic and the military. In addition, unique to the F4CP feature, guidelines are provided for both veterans and doctors of chiropractic about referrals, gaining access to care, even if initially denied, and how to help further care integration or attain employment within military health facilities.
“Chiropractic services are a part of the standard medical benefits package available to all veterans, and this corner will help inform those entitled,” says Halstead. “Most importantly, Military Corner reinforces how much the Foundation cares about chiropractic care for our military and, to that, I say ‘HOOAH’ and ‘thank you for caring!’”
