Embracing Integration: 
Creativity in Osteopathic Medicine

March 11-15, 2020
J'Aimee Anne Lippert, DO, program chair
The Broadmoor
Colorado Springs, Colorado

Osteopathic medicine provides patients, physicians and communities the opportunity to explore health from all perspectives, and it integrates mind, body and spirit into the provision of care and education. The 2020 Convocation, in the inherently inspirational setting of Colorado Springs, provided experiences for integrating such concepts as nutrition, functional medicine, movement therapy, exercise prescription, injection modalities, and team care approaches into the osteopathic care of patients and self-care of physicians.
