National Osteopathic Medicine (NOM) Week, a time dedicated to promoting the distinct care DOs provide, has officially begun! Watch this AOA Minute Video to see what the AOA has planned for NOM week, including a prominent Chicago-based ad campaign, launching an online version of the AOA's Mini Medical School, and more. This year, NOM Week coincides with National Volunteer Week. As osteopathic physicians and medical students, you offer unique skills that can be utilized in your communities and around the world to help those in need. If you believe in the value of volunteering, we ask you to take the NOM Week 2012 pledge to show your commitment to giving back this week.
