The new board of directors was sworn in on June 19 at CSRI’s general meeting. The event was held at Maria Cucina in Providence. 

“The past 15 months have been challenging for our communities, our patients and our doctors within the chiropractic profession. The Chiropractic Society of Rhode Island has been proactive in addressing those challenges, initiating the Straighten Up, RI campaign promoting health and wellness during the pandemic,” said Dr. Fabris. “As we still move through the pandemic, we’ll continue with initiatives like this to make even more people aware of the benefits of chiropractic for spinal health and to make our Society an even more valuable resource to our members as well as our patients and communities.”

Chiropractic has been utilized as essential healthcare during the pandemic. The CSRI represents more than half of practicing chiropractors in the state who continue to care for patients and promote back and spinal health during this challenging time.
