Official MCQI Response to the ACA Chairman House of Delegates Speech

MCQI Responds to False Statements by ACA Chairman

May 7, 2013

As much as the Movement for Chiropractic Quality and Integrity (MCQI) is committed to respecting everyone's opinion within a drugless and non-surgical chiropractic profession, we find it challenging to give respect to Dr. Simone for making blatantly false statements in his recent House of Delegates (HOD) address.

Dr. Simone mentioned MCQI twice in his recent speech. We are taking this opportunity to set the record straight regarding Dr. Simone's misleading statements.


Transcript of Dr. Michael Simone's speech at ACA Legislative Convention

At the opening of the American Chiropractors Association (ACA) Legislative Convention in Washington DC last week, chairman of the ACA Council, Dr. Michael Simone spoke fiercely out against the professions inability to deal with internal problems. -The issues are emotional for some and the possible solutions are very complex, and there is a chance that a dogmatic belief may keep one side from negotiating at all. Isn?t it time for the key players to be locked into a room and not let out until they can agree on something? Our future can be bright, but we must be willing to move towards the light?our very existence depends on it, said Dr. Simone.

Dr. Michael Simone of Colorado is the chairmen of the ACA Board of Governors. The speech was very well received by the ACA House of Delegates.
