PCA pursues its raison d’etre by informing, educating and advocating on behalf of ALL Doctors of Chiropractic and their patients. As one of the Keystone State’s leading health care associations, the PCA is outspoken about embracing Conservative Care First as a verified public health policy strategy for safe and cost-effective health care for all Pennsylvanians. Through the delivery of a strong advocacy voice, diverse educational programs and dedicated member services, the PCA enables and empowers Doctors of Chiropractic to successfully and ethically practice for the benefit of patients, communities and the profession.
