Brunarski
is one of only seven non-surgeon members within the CSS. 

 

Brunarski
hopes that his membership in the CSS will help foster new interprofessional
relationships that will enhance the role of chiropractic in health care. 

 

CSS past
president, Dr. Daryl Fourney, and executive director Dr. Hamilton Hall noted
that they were interested in furthering collaboration with chiropractic, in
order to support non-operative and multidisciplinary treatment in the area of
spinal health care.
