'We have found ourselves in a continuously developing and changing profession. However, this same profession is not fully understood or considered as a healthcare choice by the entirety of the global population. A lack of awareness and understanding of who Chiropractors are and what Chiropractic entails can be highlighted amongst others as one of the greatest modern-day challenges that the Chiropractic profession faces. The inclusion of the youth of Chiropractic in advocacy and interaction at high level proceedings gives the profession the opportunity to address matters of importance in a new and innovative manner.
To the Youth I say, take the opportunities given and do not be afraid of what the task encompasses. Be fearless in your pursuit to learn and you will always find someone to guide you along your path. Achieving this goal will be an incredible representation of the Chiropractic profession and the youth of healthcare at large'.
