Osteopathic Advocacy Network

On the Frontline

Grassroots advocacy tailored for you

You have the power to help shape the future of osteopathic medicine. Select a level of engagement to customize your involvement at the grassroots level.



The AOA is working on your behalf every day, but you are the best advocate for the osteopathic profession and your elected officials must hear from you. Your experience and knowledge can help guide lawmakers to craft impactful legislation for you and your patients.
