World Congress of Women Chiropractors

The World Congress of Women Chiropractors (WCWC) is a professional association dedicated to empowering women in the chiropractic profession. The organization annually awards scholarships for chiropractic students and seminar grants for DCs. Since 1984, during Parker Seminars, exclusive WCWC events have taken place. Attendees enjoy networking, sharing stories, and discussing career experiences. Parker Seminars makes it easy to get involved with the WCWC through various luncheons and ceremonies.

Parker University thanks all the hardworking women in chiropractic who expand the knowledge base and reach of the chiropractic industry through their chosen careers. Thank you for successfully using your crucial roles as leaders to promote chiropractic!
