At FCA’s The National Convention and Expo over the weekend, ChiroHealthUSA announced the recipient of the Foxworth Family Scholarship. This year’s scholarship winner is Dustin Biggerstaff, a student at Life University.
“Being the recipient of the Foxworth Family Scholarship reinforces that the profession of chiropractic chose me to continue to be of service to my community,” Biggerstaff said. “To receive this scholarship is a blessing.”
For the seventh consecutive year, a chiropractic student was awarded a $10,000 scholarship, $5,000 cash, and a $10,000 donation was made to the student’s chiropractic college. The Foxworth Family Chiropractic Scholarship is fully funded by ChiroHealthUSA and was established in honor of President Dr. Ray Foxworth’s parents, Dr. Betty Pace Mathews and Dr. Charles Vernon Mathews.
“Establishing a scholarship in my parents’ honor was a small way to thank them and the profession that has done so much for me,” Dr. Ray Foxworth said.
“We are truly honored that a Life University student was selected to receive the prestigious 2022 ChiroHealthUSA scholarship,” said Gilles LaMarche, DC, VP of University Advancement and Enrollment. “We are grateful to Dr. Ray Foxworth and ChiroHealthUSA for the creation of the scholarship, and for the wonderful donation to Life University that accompanies this award.”
“I am very proud that Life University student Dustin Biggerstaff was chosen to receive the 2022 ChiroHealthUSA Foxworth Family Scholarship. The university is grateful to Dr. Foxworth and the entire organization for what this scholarship means to future chiropractors in making their educational dreams less financially burdensome,” said Life University President Dr. Robert Scott. “We are also honored that the scholarship provides a generous donation to the recipient’s university, which will help Life U further our mission to empower each student with the education, skills, and values they need to maximize their perfection within.”
Students may begin submitting applications for the 2023 scholarship on Sept. 1, 2022. The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2023. Recipient notifications will go out on or before July 15, 2023, and the recipient will once again be announced during the National Convention in Orlando in August of 2023.

“It is important for me to give back to a profession that has meant so much to me and my family,” said Dr. Foxworth, “not only as tribute to my parents, but as an opportunity for chiropractic students to follow in their footsteps.”
Founded in 2007, ChiroHealthUSA is a simple, compliant and profitable way for chiropractors to offer affordable care to their patients. ChiroHealthUSA was established with a foundation of giving back to the chiropractic profession and has donated $2.9 million as part of that mission.
