If this were to happen, First Adjustment would move the event online. Our Spring 2020 events were held via Zoom and our attendees stated that it was highly interactive and educational. We even had two doctors that had attended a First Adjustment in the past and they said that it was just as interactive and educational as a live event.
Although the seminar revolves around this very special segment of the population, to preserve the quality of this program, we request they remain outside of the event room during the entire presentation.
Registration begins Saturday at 7:30 AM
Lunch is from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
Saturday's program ends at 5:30 PM

If the schedule changes Dr. Claudia will announce it on Saturday.
Additionally, these times are the same regardless of time zone.
There is nothing more powerful than the first adjustment of an infant or child but before you can have a first adjustment you have to educate parents about why children need chiropractic care.
Many seminars “promise you the moon” and you might leave with a lot of excitement but often you come back to your office Monday morning empty-handed with no “how to’s” or “whys”. Dr. Claudia’s intention is to share with you practical procedures and protocols that every practice should implement. It’s real simple, there’s no secret handshake, and it takes real practical ideas to get families in your practice and retain them.
If you’ve ever thought about joining Dr. Claudia’s mentoring program, but the timing just wasn’t right, this program is designed to help you pick up some great ideas in the meanwhile.
Generations is an intensive, exclusive program with only 30 doctors per year invited to join. This 8-hour seminar may be a great introduction to see if Generations is right for you or will provide some practical information for those of you who are on the waiting list for Generations.
Yes, you will receive a disc with an educational materials starter kit that you can personalize yourself and put to use in your practice to provide your patients with helpful, educational information.
Dr. Claudia is a full-time practicing chiropractor, however, she sees the need to bring successful strategies to her fellow colleagues. With that in mind, making “First Adjustment” valuable for any practice is her mission. That’s why every attendee benefits from 8 to 12-hours of CE credit (depending upon attendance on Sunday), certificate of completion when required by your state board, over 100 pages of scientifically resourced notes, a year’s worth of educational materials including 12 Wellness Family Newsletters and more.
If I’ve seen her teach for the ICPA or speak at another seminar can I expect something different?
Although she always has a foundational message, it continues to evolve in the area of patient education and community outreach.
Any doctor looking for another quick fix or gimmick or an external bait & switch program for new patients because growing a Family Wellness Practice takes time and effort and will not happen overnight.
Day Two will be technique instruction where you will be taught examination, set-up and adjusting techniques with a hands-on demonstration and review of your implementation. It would not be possible to give this kind of specific attention to each doctor if there were no limit on the number of doctors in attendance.
Space is limited for the Sunday event; students will be allowed to fill any remaining seats on a first-come, first-served basis.
