Representative Gene Green (D-TX) introduced H.R. 2202, to appoint Doctors of Chiropractic as officers in the commissioned Regular Corps and the Ready Reserve Corps of the Public Health Service.

Specifically, the bill requires the President, in consultation with the Surgeon General and the Secretary of Health and Human Services, to start to appoint doctors of chiropractic into the commissioned Regular Corps and the Ready Reserve Corps of the Public Health Service no later than 90 days after the bill is signed into law.

This legislation will help achieve a long-desired goal of the chiropractic profession – to be able to serve as commissioned officers in a uniformed service, and may move the profession toward full commissioning in our Nation’s armed services. 

H.R. 2202 has been referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. Urge your Representative to cosponsor H.R. 2202 immediately!
