ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues related to the chiropractic profession. A profession embracing evolution has a role in keeping vested interests current with its growth; this requires transparency. Transparency sets the stage for an unassailable defense of good chiropractic care; trust is reinforced, collaborative endeavors are believed-in, and the voice of chiropractic carries weight. Transparency reinforces societal institutions' willingness to grant, or in some cases, relinquish the privilege of professional self-determination.
