The AOA is proud to partner with Mediaplanet for its Osteopathic Medicine campaign.

The campaign includes features on osteopathic physician leaders who are making a distinct impact on the future of medicine, including the first Black woman to be dean of a U.S. medical school, Barbara Ross-Lee, DO, the chief health and medical officer of NASA, J.D. Polk, DO, and many more.

“As you read this publication, I hope you gain a better understanding of the osteopathic profession and the amazing people — past and present — who tirelessly work to improve healthcare in our country and proudly call themselves doctors of osteopathic medicine (D.O.s),” AOA CEO Kevin Klauer, DO, EJD, wrote in an op-ed introducing the campaign. “The distinctiveness of DOs is what I hope you recognize and appreciate while reading this publication.”

Learn about the valuable contributions DOs are making to the world of health care by reading the campaign online, or in a March 24 print copy of USA Today.
