  Title Chiropractic within the American Public Health Association, 1984-2005: Pariah, to participant, to parity
Journal Chiropr Hist. 2006 Summer;26(1):97-117
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Chiropractors were granted the right to form a group identity within the American Public Health Association (APHA) at the conclusion of 1983 after an official anti-chiropractic policy was reversed. Beginning in 1984, chiropractors began serving alongside other public health professionals within this prestigious association, the world’s oldest and largest public health organization. Although permitted a group identity within the APHA, chiropractors still had to overcome many obstacles to full participation, including professional bias, misunderstanding, and struggle within the ranks. By 1995, chiropractic succeeded in achieving full APHA section status, or full equivalence to other health professions within the APHA. The year 2005 marked the tenth anniversary of this achievement. This article traces the history of chiropractic within the APHA from the early years of acceptance to the eventual celebration of a decade of full parity.
