The deadline to apply for 2007 ARHP Graduate Student Recognition Awards is July 5. Last year, the ARHP successfully launched this new award campaign to recognize health professional students pursuing creative research or clinical projects that merge theory and clinical practice to assess or improve the lives of patients with rheumatic diseases.
The award is open to graduate students in health-related areas including, but not limited to, behavioral medicine, epidemiology, health services, psychology, nursing, nutrition, occupational therapy, physical therapy, bioengineering, and social work. The ARHP member serving as the student’s mentor will need to assist students with submitting the award application.
Proposals will be evaluated based on scientific merit, rigor, and potential significance to the field. The two top-rated proposals will win a $500 award, registration to the 2007 Annual Scientific Meeting, and a year’s ARHP membership.
