Pi Kappa Chi
A Professional Chiropractic Fraternity
Who and What We Are
Founded in 1961, by Dr. David D. Palmer along with a handful of focused young men, PI KAPPA CHI is a professional
fraternity within the chiropractic community. The Fraternity was established with many goals in mind, Our most important
objective being: TO ELEVATE, PROMOTE, AND STRENGTHEN THE REPUTATION OF THE DOCTOR OF CHIROPRACTIC AND THE CHIROPRACTIC PROFESSION
ITSELF IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD. Our organization is progressive in approaching the Science, Art, and Philosophy of
chiropractic which allows us to understand the full potential of our profession rather than just one segment. This fraternity
emphasizes Quality, Academics, and Involvement in issues concerning the chiropractic community. We also enjoy
the social aspect of the fraternity which make it a true brotherhood.
