With the AOA Annual Business Meeting just a few weeks away, resolutions to go before the AOA Board of Trustees and House of Delegates are now available on Osteopathic.org for comment. As one of my final tasks as AOA President, I’d like to ask you to take part in this important process by reviewing these resolutions and submitting your comments. I believe it is vitally important that all voices within the osteopathic family are heard.
Looking through the new resolutions put forth this year, of which there are over 60, you will find many that pertain to the critical issues facing our profession today, such as osteopathic graduate medical education (B-15, B-27, H-200, H-206, H-208, and others); for-profit medical education (H-211); discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity (H-500); and ICD-10 (H-611).
Once your comments are received and reviewed, your elected delegates will work together to vote on these policies and ensure that the osteopathic medical profession continues to move forward with a unified voice and mission. To comment on any of the resolutions to be acted on, send an email with the resolution number and title to firstname.lastname@example.org.
