This post will be my last one on the AOA President’s Blog. I want to take this opportunity to say that it has been a pleasure to share my thoughts and experiences with you. I’ve heard back from you both in the comments section and in person as I’ve made my travels around the country visiting osteopathic medical schools and attending osteopathic events. While I look forward to returning to my role as Dean of Midwestern University/Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, I will miss learning from and engaging with so many of you.
As my term comes to an end, I promise to stay involved, active, and engaged in our great profession. I hope you will too. Working as a team this past year, we have made great strides, but we still have a long road ahead on our way to accomplishing all our goals. We cannot do it without the support from each and every member of this osteopathic family.
I offer my sincerest thank you for all your enthusiasm, hospitality, and hard work this past year. We have truly made a great team!
