The mission of the Minnesota Board of Chiropractic Examiners (MBCE) is to protect the public through effective licensure and enforcement of the statutes and rules governing the practice of chiropractic to ensure a standard of competent and ethical practice in the profession.
The Board deeply mourn's the sudden loss of Dr. Gary Pennebaker. Dr. Pennebaker, a former Board member, has had an illustrious career with far reaching national implications. Dr. Pennebaker was appointed to the Board in 1996, and having been reappointed twice, served until 2008. Dr. Pennebaker served as the Board's president from 2000 until 2006. Dr. Pennebaker has also served in many positions such as the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Board's (FCLB) delegate, National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) Delegate, and Chairman of the FCLB Board. Dr. Pennebaker was serving as an at-large member of the NBCE at the time of his death. Dr. Pennebaker was a tireless advocate for the chiropractic profession and he will be greatly missed.
