Members Choose OMED Theme


AOA members were charged once again this year with choosing the theme for the annual Osteopathic Medical Conference and Exposition, OMED 2013, planned for Sept. 30-Oct. 4 in Las Vegas.

Members of the AOA were asked to submit their OMED 2013 theme ideas on the wall of the AOA Facebook page. After receiving more than 130 submissions, the top five themes were selected as finalists. AOA members voted for their favorites by "liking" them on the Facebook wall.

After garnering 179 votes, the winning theme for OMED 2013 was announced: "Know the Science, Practice the Art," submitted by Franklin Harrison, DO. 

The AOA congratulates Dr. Harrison and thanks the hundreds of AOA members who voted in the theme contest.
