WCA to Honor Gelardis at International Summit


Thom and Betty
Gelardi, D.C.s

The World Chiropractic Alliance will honor Sherman College founders Thom and Betty (‘76) Gelardi, D.C.s, at its International Summit 2004, April 29-May 1, at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Washington, D.C.

“Too often, we wait until people are no longer with us before we pay tribute to them,” says WCA President Terry Rondberg. “I don’t want that to happen with Thom Gelardi. I want him to spend his next decades (may they be many!) knowing that his contributions — past, present and future — had and continue to have a powerful and positive impact on the chiropractic profession.

Rondberg also plans to extend the tribute to Betty Gelardi, “the one person who has been by his side, and in his heart, since the beginning. One of the most remarkable, intelligent and compassionate women I have ever met, she has been a true and dedicated friend to chiropractic — and to thousands of chiropractors and students,” he says.

Rondberg invites anyone who knows and admires the Gelardis to join the WCA during a special ceremony at the Summit. “Come light a candle for Thom, and thank him for carrying the torch for chiropractic,” he says.

The World Chiropractic Alliance program, hosted by Rondberg, will feature 15 speakers and will cover philosophy, research, clinical practice and public relations. The event will close with the candle-lighting tribute to the Gelardis.
