FCLB President Affirms Doctors of Chiropractic are Essential Healthcare Providers
March 17, 2020
With the concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19), I want to reassure you that the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards (FCLB) is remaining focused on our mission of public health and protection during these unprecedented times.
Our goal is to continue serving our member boards and stakeholders as a centralized and premier resource for information and consolidated services. Knowing there are many questions, our dedicated team at FCLB is ready to provide the support and information chiropractors need to act in the best interests of the public.
The FCLB encourages all chiropractors to stay up-to-date with recommendations and protocols established by the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health departments in regard to COVID-19 and their jurisdictional licensing boards' practice acts, rules, regulations, and policies.
The FCLB affirms that doctors of chiropractic are essential healthcare providers, ready to serve their communities both in daily care and in times of urgent need.
Please know, that as our licensees are in the front lines of patient care, regulatory boards are working diligently behind the scenes to provide the support and information chiropractors need to act in the best interests of the public. I want to reiterate our gratitude to our member boards and your commitment to public protection.
Karlos Boghosian, DC
