Fostering the Advancement of Chiropractic

as a Science and Healing Art

The American Chiropractic Association Council on Nutrition is one of the largest academic specialty councils of the ACA. It was founded with the purpose of promoting the orderly advancement of chiropractic as a science and healing art.

It assists and cooperates with the parent organization to gather, correlate and disseminate knowledge and information concerning the use of nutrition in the practice of chiropractic. All our efforts are directed toward the benefit of our members, the profession and the public.

  2. To be a liaison with our teaching institutions.
  3. To encourage professional consultation with members of other professions.
  4. To sponsor and promote seminars and courses of study in nutrition, both separately and in cooperation with other ACA councils.
  5. To be and remain a charitable organization availed only for chiropractice purposes, as provided in Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code.
