Diversifying chiropractic is critical to growth with SABCA

Fostering diversity and inclusion within chiropractic will ultimately give more people access to chiropractic care. Life West Student American Black Chiropractic Association (SABCA) members Xavier Crawford and Dayanara Thompson share with Dr. Ron Oberstein their approach to broadening the reach of chiropractic into medically underserved communities.

SABCA‘s mission is to serve underrepresented Doctors of Chiropractic of color. Here is a recent talk given at Life West by SABCA members, along with a supporting deck. The chapter has also facilitated numerous outreach efforts within the Bay Area, including a partnership with The City Eats and #HashtagLunchbag to distribute lunches and supplies to the local homeless community.
