About the ABCA
The ABCA was founded in 1981 by Dr. Bobby Westbrooks, a practicing Chiropractor in St. Louis, Missouri, who had a vision to empower African American doctors and students in chiropractic. Dr. 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. This caused schools to continually have significantly low enrollment of African American students. The result was a significantly low number of African American graduates, and ultimately communities of color underserved by the opportunities and benefit of chiropractic.

Dr. Westbrooks realized there was an immediate and ongoing need for minority supportive services in the chiropractic profession. He founded the American Black Chiropractic Association (ABCA) with just a handful of doctors of African American descent. He hoped to achieve some of his goals through the ABCA, and to share these goals with some of his colleagues and friends. For more details about ABCA, visit www.abcachiro.com
