Call for Papers Date:
Chiropractic students throughout the world are invited to enter the Rehm Medal essay contest sponsored by the Association for the History of Chiropractic (AHC). The medal honors William S. Rehm, D.C.

Students must be enrolled in an accredited chiropractic program at the time of submission.
The winner will be invited to attend the annual meeting of the Association for the History of Chiropractic during the year the medal is conferred.
