 World Congress of Women Chiropractors

The World Congress of Women Chiropractors was founded by Jim Parker in 1982 and is dedicated to the empowerment of women in the chiropractic profession. The association holds its biannual meetings in Las Vegas and Dallas, graciously hosted by Parker Seminars. Our goal is to encourage other women in the field of chiropractic and raise money for scholarships of $1000 each that are awarded to deserving female chiropractic students each year.  The number of scholarships given hinges on the amount of money raised.

As a nonprofit organization, Parker University needs your support to offer quality education to students, cutting-edge research for the profession, and valuable services to our patients and to the community. Your decision to partner with Parker creates a stronger voice for chiropractic and your investment helps create a global community ensuring the chiropractic profession becomes a leader in the 21st century for health and wellness.

There are many potential ways you can focus your gift to help the Parker community. Dedicated interest on the part of donors is a key element for the health of the Parker community.

Participation in Parker University is also an important indicator of alumni engagement—a message to corporations and foundations who might offer large gifts that the alumni support their University.

A commitment to Parker University is an ongoing “vote of support” for Parker.
