The mission of the Student American Chiropractic Association (SACA) is to enhance the chiropractic profession by expanding the active membership and student involvement in the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and the chiropractic profession as a whole. SACA accomplishes this by promoting student awareness of the profession and helping students become effective leaders. In addition, students are provided with opportunities to promote the profession to advance chiropractic into the future.
WHO WE ARE
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) is the largest professional association in the United States that represents doctors of chiropractic. ACA promotes the highest standards of ethics and patient care and contributes to the health and well-being of millions of chiropractic patients.
On behalf of its members, ACA lobbies for pro-chiropractic legislation and policies, promotes a positive public image of chiropractic, supports research, provides professional and educational opportunities for doctors of chiropractic, and offers leadership for the advancement of the profession.
SACA is the ACA’s student counterpart. ACA supports SACA in their endeavors for the betterment of the chiropractic profession, which includes sending students to three national conferences each year; to learn, to lead and to fight for chiropractic rights.
SACA members are the leaders of tomorrow, and a powerful force that has opened doors for future doctors of chiropractic.
