The American Black Chiropractic Association was founded in 1981 by Dr. Bobby Westbrooks, whose vision was to empower African American doctors and students in chiropractic care. Taking notice that there was a low enrollment of African American and other minority students in the field of chiropractic care, Dr. Westbrooks recognized the need for minority support services in the chiropractic profession and the American Black Chiropractic Association was born. With just a handful of doctors, the ABCA held their first convention, with 17 people in attendance. Over the years, that number has grown exponentially and each year brings together a growing number of doctors, students and supporters of the chiropractic field. This years’ convention will be held at the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada from June 27-29.
