National Osteopathic Medicine (NOM) Week takes place April 15-21, 2018. NOM Week brings the osteopathic medical profession together to focus on one common goal - increasing awareness of osteopathic medicine and DOs in communities across the country.
Spread the DO word through your social channels with these images:
Education and Outreach
Educate your community and share your DO pride with your network or us using the hashtag #DoctorsThatDO or #ProudDO. Share them on our DOs (Osteopathic Physicians) Facebook wall or tweet them to @AOAforDOs.
Other Ways to Promote Osteopathic Medicine
Hand out the “What is a DO?” brochure to patients, available in the AOA Online Store.
Set up a table at a local hospital or other community facility and distribute information about DOs.
- When asked, "What is a DO?", try responding with our elevator pitch:
There are two types of fully licensed physicians in the U.S. – MDs and DOs.
Our training and education are very similar and equally rigorous, but DOs come at the practice of medicine from a different philosophy.
- We tend to partner with our patients to help them get healthy and stay well.
