The AAO’s program will present various viewpoints on incorporating osteopathic principles into the practice of different specialties. The AAO is partnering with several specialty colleges to provide lectures and hands-on instruction from specialists with clinical experience in internal medicine, neurology, psychiatry, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, family medicine and sports medicine. In addition, a workshop on the Stiles-Laughlin technique, a very useful functional approach, will be presented.
Among the speakers are Kendi L. Hensel, DO, PhD; Kimberly J. Wolf, DO, FACOP; Lisa E. Hart, DO; and Ava C. Stanczak, DO, FAAP, FACOP. In addition, Kenneth J. Lossing, DO, will deliver the annual Thomas L. Northup Lecture. Dr. Lossing was the AAO's 2014-15 president, and he has practiced osteopathic manipulative medicine in northern California for more than 20 years.
