The conference will be held Dec. 9-11, 2011, at the Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. This event marks be the first time that specialty councils of the two organizations have collaborated on a single conference for the chiropractic profession. It will be a historic occasion and one that bodes well for the future of chiropractic pediatric continuing education.
