Chiropractic students throughout the world are invited to enter the Rehm Medal Essay Contest. The medal honors William S. Rehm, D.C. (1920-2002), the father of the Association for the History of Chiropractic (AHC). The award is given for an outstanding unpublished essay by a single author on any topic in the history of chiropractic. The essay (maximum 10,000 words, including endnotes) must be the result of original research or show an unusual appreciation and understanding of problems in the history of chiropractic. In particular, the committee will judge essays on the quality of writing, appropriate use of sources, and ability to address themes of historical significance.

 

The winner will be invited to attend the annual meeting of the AHC during the year the medal is conferred.  Registration, airfare (as set by the board but not to exceed $500) two nights in the hotel, as well as a year of complimentary membership in the AHC will be provided for the winner. If the Rehm Medal Committee also selects an essay for honorable mention, its author will receive a year complimentary membership in the AHC.
