Gives First Presidential Address
As the newly elected President of the GCC, and on behalf of our entire Board of Directors, I would like to extend my sincere and heartfelt appreciation for the honor and privilege of leading such a historically relevant organization. The Georgia Council of Chiropractic has a rich history of accomplishments within the state of Georgia, other states in the U.S., and the entire world; and I am humbled to be a part of such a legacy.
After graduating from SUNY at Buffalo in the year 2000, I moved to Atlanta to pursue a career in the profession that had revolutionized my life and remarkably changed my overall health. I fell in love with the Atlanta area, Life University campus and its President, Dr. Sid Williams. In my second quarter at Life, I was able to go to DE and have been consistently attending since that time. It was a great time and a life changing experience. It was, however, during this time period that Life lost its accreditation and over 80% of the student body transferred out. I remember sitting thru many meetings, even those that were mostly for Life's teachers and administrators. It was a time of great confusion and desperation for a once flourishing university. At this time, a small group of students decided to band together and to defend the university's right to exist and not transfer out. Many have said we in this group chose to be 'baptized by fire' into Chiropractic. We setup telethons, wrote letters, and even had a group march to be heard by the Georgia state officials. I believe that besides other factors, all this hardship was put on the students and teachers because not enough of us showed up at the right time to stop an opposing faction in our profession. Life University came out of the whole fiasco and is thriving once again, but the same situation is now arising again, and this time it is about the scope of chiropractic practice in the state of Georgia.
It had been two days since I was elected President of the GCC, after an amazing annual convention at the Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville, Ga. Our Executive Director, Kat Frazier, forwarded an email, which has been attached, that smells similar to the faction that organized the removal of Life's accreditation. The email is an open declaration of a full on effort to expand the scope of chiropractic to have rights to prescribe drugs and injectables for the citizens of Georgia. ( read more)

Our mission is to profess and promote the ideals and principles of the founder of chiropractic, Dr. DD Palmer, the developer of chiropractic, Dr. BJ Palmer, and the defender of chiropractic and founder of the GCC, Dr. Sid E. Williams.

GCC News GCC Founder, Dr. Sid E Williams, Dies Dr Sid E. Williams passed away early Thursday morning. While our profession has lost the greatest chiropractic champion of our lifetime, we should all feel privileged to have lived in the time of the “Defender of Chiropractic. Dr Sid was the founder of the Georgia Council of Chiropractic. He guided the GCC and the early leaders through the formative years. He mentored many of us in preparation for leadership, giving us the strength and direction to carry on the work. Although we will all miss him, he gave us our vision and our marching orders. The work of defending the principles of chiropractic now falls to us. Before his passing, BJ Palmer instructed us about the principle of chiropractic when he asked us to “guard it well”. Now with the passing of Dr Sid, we must remember that he told us to “Keep on Keepin on". In Memory of our Leader, Dr. Bobby Braile, President GCC
