Chiropractic and Stroke Risk - Webinar and Resources

On October 25, 2016, CCA members were provided a special webinar with Dr. Gerry Clum. The webinar focused on cervical artery dissection in response to recent news coverage on the accidental death of celebrity Katie May. 

CCA has been monitoring the news closely and we are available to provide comments, should media inquire more about the situation. View the recent memo regarding this issue. 

Should you or your office be contacted by the media, we encourage you to forward those inquiries to Cris Forysth, CCA Director of Governmental Affairs and Communications and we will respond accordingly.  Please do not comment as a representative of CCA.  Cris Forsyth can be reached at or at 916.648.2720, ext 130.
