Sherman College Gathers Leaders in Chiropractic for 16th Annual IRAPS

Up to 14.5 hours of continuing education credit are available, depending on state regulations. Registration is open at

The goal of IRAPS is to bring together leaders in philosophy and research as well as practitioners who are centered on the vertebral subluxation practice, to build a stronger academic community worldwide regarding the subluxation model of chiropractic. The symposium’s intent is to foster a view that the chiropractic profession is centered on vertebral subluxation, based on vitalism, dedicated to research and developing a discipline of philosophy.

Keynote speakers include Scott L. Rosa, D.C., B.C.A.O, and Claude Lessard, D.C. Rosa will present “A Neuro-Radiographic Demonstration of the Upper Cervical Misalignment in Patients Involved in Head/Neck Trauma,” and Lessard will present, “A New Look at Chiropractic Basic Science.”
