Diversifying chiropractic with ABCA President Dr. Micheala Edwards

As the President of the American Black Chiropractic Association (ABCA), Dr. Micheala Edwards has a lofty goal of opening more doors to prospective DCs and chiropractic patients of color, thus ensuring everyone with a spine truly has access to chiropractic care. She and Dr. Ron Oberstein discuss the work ABCA is doing to diversify chiropractic at a time when fewer than five percent of chiropractors in the United States identify as African American.

ABCA’s mission is to integrate and improve outcomes for people of color who are entering into the chiropractic profession. Dr. Edwards practices in Kansas City.
