Governor and RI State Assembly proclaim Sept. 16-22 to be Chiropractic Society of Rhode Island week
On September 22, The Chiropractic Society of Rhode Island (CSRI) will celebrate its 100th anniversary. That celebration got off to an early start with both Governor Gina M. Raimondo and the Rhode Island General Assembly issuing proclamations declaring September 16-22 to be the Chiropractic Society of Rhode Island Week.
“The Governor and the General Assembly have been supportive in our efforts to get insurance companies to include chiropractic as part of their health benefits packages,” said Dr. David Dwyer, president of the Chiropractic Society and chiropractic physician at Tollgate Chiropractic in Warwick and Wakefield, Rhode Island. “We appreciate those efforts and are grateful for the proclamation as celebrate this very significant milestone.”
The Chiropractic Society of Rhode Island is one of the oldest societies of its kind in the United States. Over the years, the Society has worked diligently to provide continuing education and networking opportunities for its members as well as educating the public on the many benefits of chiropractic and its drug-free approach to pain prevention and pain management.
Nearly half the state’s chiropractors are members of the Society.
Celebration of 100th anniversary will take place at a gala celebration on September 22 at the Rotunda Ballroom at Easton’s Beach in Newport. The night will include special guest speaker Dr. Dean Depice, a chiropractor and nationally renowned speaker and chiropractic practice coach and consultant. In addition to ceremonies, speaker, cocktail hour and dinner, entertainment will be provided by The Teledynes.
Sponsorship opportunities for the event are still available. The three levels of sponsorship include: Platinum, $1,000; Silver, $750; and Bronze, $500. Benefits of sponsorship are pre- and same-day mention in all promotions.
