Posted 2:01 PM by

AAO’s next president wants photos of your service to others.

During her term as the AAO’s 2016-17 president, Laura E. Griffin, DO, FAAO, plans to focus on how Academy members and others in the osteopathic medical profession serve those in need. To celebrate the service Academy members provide and to encourage others to follow their example, Dr. Griffin will use her inaugural address to feature photographs and short videos of DOs and osteopathic medical students participating in missions, health fairs, free clinics and other service activities.

“The osteopathic medical profession has always had an emphasis on serving others, and Academy members excel in this,” notes Dr. Griffin.

If you have photos or video clips of you in any kind of service activity, Dr. Griffin requests that you send them to by Feb. 26. Please include the full names of the people in the photos and videos; the name of the event, its date and location; and the name of the photographer.

Dr. Griffin will deliver her inaugural address at the president’s banquet on Saturday, March 19, at the AAO’s 2016 Convocation in Orlando, Florida. If you haven’t registered to attend the Convocation yet, you can do so now at
