The Clinical Compass is standing in solidarity with the American Black Chiropractic Association (ABCA), peaceful protesters, and our global community, as we work to end racism and health disparity.
Diversity is critical to the chiropractic profession’s ability to maximize positive impact, specifically, for Black communities. Diversity propels innovation and collective success. Making diversity a priority, we commit to making necessary changes within our organization to facilitate equality, opportunity, and justice for all persons. The magnitude of the moment additionally calls us to collaborate to address the unique disparities faced by Black Americans.
None of us alone can save the nation or the world. But each of us can make a positive difference if we commit ourselves to do so.”
– Cornel West
The Clinical Compass, grounded in Evidence, Education and Empowerment, is committed to action. As such, we will:
- Immediately add an ABCA member to the Clinical Compass Board of Directors as an Ex-Officio Director.
- Create opportunities for the ABCA student and doctor members to participate in the Clinical Compass research process.
- Incorporate relevant images of diversity in our information dissemination tools to improve public health.
Research informs how we understand and experience the world. We commit to transforming our world through collaboration with Black communities. We must end racism, and health disparities, to ensure justice and a brighter and healthier future for all.
