National University SABCA club members (Student American Black Chiropractic Association) attended the ABCA (American Black Chiropractic Association) Central Regional Conference in Minnesota last month.

“What really struck me as an ND student was the holistic nature of the conference,” said NUHS student Aisha Karidio.  “Manipulation is part of the naturopathic scope of practice and it was great seeing the passion and evidence on how chiropractic care, along with other natural therapeutics, can benefit our patients.”

The annual event, which takes place at different colleges each year, was held at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minnesota March 13-14. The conference featured speaker sessions and a doctor’s panel along with various social events. Students were also able to learn about alternative medicine fields including Chinese medicine, soft tissue work, dietary counseling and functional medicine.

“It really opened my eyes on how well different health disciplines can work together and how important we are when it comes to serving our communities,” Karidio said.

The event was well attended by both doctors and students.  Karidio stressed the importance of these events for minority students and in particular black students.

“As minority students, we are constantly striving for fair representation on and off campus, and we want to make sure that above all, we as future doctors are equipped with the appropriate tools to go back and serve our communities.”

SABCA held a taffy apple sale last October and a rose sale this past February for Valentine’s Day to offset some of the costs for attending this conference.
