ChiroHealthUSA has announced that Amber Horsley is the recipient of ChiroHealthUSA Foxworth Family Scholarship in honor of President Dr. Ray Foxworth’s parents, Drs. Betty Pace Mathews and Charles Vernon Mathews. Ms. Horsley, a chiropractic student at Texas Chiropractic College, was awarded $10,000, and ChiroHealthUSA made an additional $10,000 donation to the school.


Like Dr. Foxworth, Ms. Horsley never planned on becoming a chiropractor. Knowing that she wanted to work in the medical field, she shadowed doctors in clinics and hospitals trying to find something that aligned with her personal philosophy on health care. Reflecting on that time, she said, “I realized that I was searching for something that wasn’t there.” She went home to Google “alternative health care.” Her search brought up the Alternative Health Care Center, and she walked into the office of Dr. Robert Kuyper the following week. She did not know until she arrived at his office that Dr. Kuyper was a chiropractor. After that visit, she knew in her heart that she wanted to be one, too.

Upon hearing that she had been selected as the recipient, Ms. Horsley said, “I am honored beyond measure to have been allowed this opportunity to further my career in such a rewarding way.”

Students may begin submitting applications for the 2017 scholarship immediately. The deadline for submissions is March 3, 2017. The recipient of the scholarship will be notified on or before July 1, 2017 with the recipient being announced in August 2017. Learn more at


“There are no words that can truly explain what chiropractic means to me. I started this scholarship because I wanted to give back to a profession that has meant so much to me and my family,” said Foxworth. “We all belong to chiropractic, and we all need to help, invest, and support the advancement of our profession.”
