BRENTWOOD, Tenn. The OUM Chiropractor Program, a national provider of chiropractic malpractice insurance since 1983, recently awarded four Wellness Works Scholarships to chiropractic students across the United States. The scholarship funds were raised through the generous financial support of Biofreeze, Chiropractic Economics, Chiropractic Products, Dynamic Chiropractic and Today’s Chiropractic Lifestyle, five prominent companies dedicated to the advancement of the chiropractic profession. These scholarships were awarded to Jeremy Hozjan, Charlene Lohmueller, Eric Timperley and Nam Tran for their exceptional essays that can be viewed by logging onto www.oumchiropractor.com
Jeremy Hozjan decided to pursue chiropractic as a profession because he wanted a dynamic career that was both rewarding and challenging. He feels that chiropractic provides him with opportunities for success both personally and professionally. Upon receiving his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic in June 2008, Hozjan plans to open a wellness-based family practice in Charlotte, N.C.
After obtaining an undergraduate degree from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service in 2004, Charlene Lohmueller decided that she wanted to pursue a career in chiropractic instead of Foreign Service. She desired a profession that would allow her to build deep roots in a community and help people improve their health so that they could also contribute to the community. Lohmueller will graduate in November 2008 from New York Chiropractic College and plans to open a chiropractic office on the East Coast.
Eric Timperley first learned about chiropractic care from his father who is a practicing chiropractor. He saw firsthand the benefits of chiropractic care as his father treated him for sports injuries. After seeing how the profession affected his family, he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps. After he graduates from Parker College in August 2008, Timperley plans to move back to his hometown of Lincoln, Neb. and open a chiropractic practice emphasizing pediatrics and maternity.
Nam Tran, a native of Alberta, Canada, learned about the benefits of chiropractic when his father, who was seriously injured in an auto accident, began to receive chiropractic treatment. After he saw his father go from being completely disabled to gradually regaining his life back, Tran knew he wanted to pursue chiropractic as a profession. Upon graduation from Parker College with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree Tran plans to find an associate position at a family practice in Dallas, Texas.
