“I left Palmer feeling confident that I could take
on the world, that I could diagnose and help
treat anything that came my way, and I still
feel that way today,” says Aaron Webb, D.C., Port
Orange ’13. “It has held true in all my experiences
and travel worldwide.”
Dr. Webb certainly has had opportunities to test that
theory as he’s traveled to 28 different countries, including
doing missionary work in impoverished nations.
He practices with Roach Family Wellness
Integrative Medicine in Altamonte Springs, Fla.
In 2014, he was selected to participate in the
Florida Chiropractic Association’s (FCA) Emerging
Leaders Conference. Part of that experience included
an agreement to conduct a community
service project that would highlight chiropractic.
The global community would quite naturally become
his focus. He began by partnering with Air
Mobile Ministries, based in Merritt Island, Fla., a
non-profit organization that does disaster relief all
around the world.
The goal for Dr. Webb and his partners was to
raise enough money to travel to Katmandu,
Nepal, following the earthquakes that devastated
the region in April 2015, and install self-sustaining
water purification systems. “Clean water quite
naturally becomes the most valuable resource following
these types of disasters,” adds Dr. Webb.
Dr. Webb and his team, including a general
surgeon, EMT and nurse, also traveled to the
Philippines following a typhoon and to Nepal
to provide medical and chiropractic care in
addition to clean water. Upon returning to the
U.S., Dr. Webb was awarded FCA’s “Emerging
Leader Award” during the FCA convention in
