Newsom’s Billions

In a campaign style tour around the state, Governor Newsom has been highlighting a series of budget investments he inked in the last few weeks. Among the expenditures are a $12 billion package for homelessness and a $6 billion broadband investment focused on bringing internet to underserved and rural communities. These measures are part of the Governor’s California Comeback Plan, a proposal to invest $100 billion in California as the state emerges from COVID-19 and the recession.

[ICYMI] The Hypotonic Child is Now On Demand

What: The Hypotonic Child - Discussion on Benign Congenital Hypotonia (BCH)
Speakers: Drs. Hayley and Brianna Maginness

Description: In this presentation, we will discuss the importance of the early diagnosis of Benign Congenital Hypotonia (BCH) and the long term clinical implications of the delayed diagnosis of this condition. We will detail the medical approach, as well as, the essential role of chiropractic in the management of BCH and the ‘red flags’ for practitioners to look out for. Also we will review the examination and treatment (including video demonstrations), scheduling and prognosis using our very own patients.

This talk is not designed to make you an expert in Hypotonia but the focus is to increase your knowledge about the condition, learn how to diagnose it early and learn how to correctly manage or co-manage this condition. 

Member Price: $10

CE Details: Approved for 2 general Distance Learning CE hours by the CA Board of Chiropractic Examiners: CA-A-21-07-06121.
