The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) welcomes the American Black Chiropractic Association (ABCA) to F4CP’s Group Membership, a program for chiropractic organizations’ leadership and its members to leverage F4CP resources and increase awareness of chiropractic care.
“We are delighted to become Group Members of the Foundation and provide our members with greater access to new marketing resources for their practice,” says Brandi Childress, DC, president, ABCA. “We look forward to a bright future of collaboration and welcoming more diversity into this profession.”
ABCA was founded in 1981 by Bobby Westbrooks, a practicing chiropractor in St. Louis, Missouri, who had a vision to empower African American doctors and students in chiropractic. Westbrooks recognized that many African Americans were unfamiliar with the benefits of chiropractic care and that chiropractic colleges struggled to attract minority students into their programs. Today, ABCA continues their mission by recruiting, encouraging and supporting black persons to study chiropractic.
“ABCA is devoted to fostering our next generation of chiropractors through knowledge sharing and innovation,” says Sherry McAllister, DC, president, F4CP. “We firmly believe that the addition of ABCA will further enhance the collective strength and capabilities of
our group, enabling us to achieve our common goals with even greater impact.”
Through F4CP, ABCA members will receive access to F4CP’s Group Membership benefits, as well as the right to use all marketing materials, including F4CP’s monthly newsletter and exclusive news updates, live educational webinars, “Adjusted Reality” podcast, print and digital ads, e-books and white papers, and more.
Since F4CP’s inception in 2003, F4CP’s Group Membership has grown to 56 groups and 34,000 individual doctors of chiropractic (DCs).
