The AOA continually works to expand the public policy
impact of osteopathic medicine at the federal and state levels of
government by engaging members in advocacy efforts. By combining
grassroots advocacy with events like DO Day on Capitol Hill, town hall
meetings and health policy forums, engaged AOA members help strengthen
the profession's influence with legislators and policymakers.
