American Osteopathic Association

Advancing the distinctive philosophy and practice of osteopathic medicine



Public Policy

The AOA continually works to expand the public policy impact of osteopathic medicine at the federal and state levels of government by engaging members in advocacy efforts. By combining grassroots advocacy with events like DO Day on Capitol Hill, town hall meetings and health policy forums, engaged AOA members help strengthen the profession's influence with legislators and policymakers.
