New Nutrition Board Formed

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has announced the formation of the Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition (CBCN) a diplomate-granted body for clinical nutrition.

Established and operating under the auspices of the ACA, the board maintains autonomy in terms of testing standards and protocols.

Chiropractors who have completed nutrition courses through an accredited institution are eligible to be grandfathered into the CBCN without examination until Sept. 30, subject to the following criteria: current or prior diplomate in nutrition, completion of the 300-hour nutrition diplomate course, master’s degree in nutrition from an accredited institution and three or more years in practice, or completion of 400 hours in nutrition and five or more years in practice. While practitioners can be grandfathered in without examination, they are required to sit for the first available exam in order to maintain diplomate status. For more information, visit

ICA Pediatrics Council Offering Diplomate Program This Fall

The International Chiropractors Association (ICA) Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics has announced that beginning this fall, the council’s diplomate program in clinical chiropractic pediatrics (the DICCP designation) will be offered at three locations: Chicago (starting Oct. 3), Levittown, Long Island (starting Oct. 24) and Seneca Falls, N.Y. (starting Nov. 14). The New York locations correspond with the postgraduate center and main campus, respectively, of New York Chiropractic College,which is co-sponsoring the diplomate program along with Palmer College of Chiropractic.

The three-year program comprises 30 modules and 360 classroom hours, including a weekend rotation at the Kentuckiana Children’s Center in Louisville, Ky. The program, which the ICA says features a structured, well-defined course syllabus for all three years, is endorsed by both the ICA and ACA Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics.
