Pass Colorado Chiropractic Acupuncturists Equal Rights Bill
Petition Background (Preamble):
Doctors of Chiropractic with acupuncture certification receive an average of 4800 hours of postgraduate education including pharmacology/toxicology, venipuncture, botanical and nutritional medications, laboratory and physical diagnosis of all body systems, clean needle technique and emergency medical procedures. By contrast, acupuncturists receive approximately 2500 hours of training (varies by school) and, by Colorado statute, are not considered physicians and not allowed to diagnose using Western diagnostic techniques.
HB10-1416 is a bill that would allow Chiropractors with Acupuncture Certification the rights of injection therapy as been granted to Acupuncturists since 1999.
Please pass HB10-1416.
