The finals took place on 21 April in Atlanta and Max’s outstanding achievement continues much-celebrated success of students from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic in this competition, with students from the College having now won 3 of the past 4 years.

The Talk the ‘Tic health-talk competition was created in 2006 by Dr Erik Van Slooten who at the time was a chiropractic student himself. The competition has since developed into a global programme involving 15 chiropractic colleges.

In 2016, as a Year 4 student, Max won the New Zealand ‘Talk the TIC’ championship to book his place in the finals. Previous winners in the international finals from the College include Brock Jaeb in 2016 and Andrew McCracken in 2014.

Competing in the 2018 international finals is Year 3 student Cory Palmer and the College wishes Cory the very best of luck.
