Giving Tuesday was celebrated for the first time in 2012. We encourage you to make your Giving Tuesday plans in the spirit of thankfulness that sometimes gets buried by the holiday advertising.
AAO life member Robert E. Kappler, DO, FAAODist, of River Grove, Illinois, died Oct. 18. Dr. Kappler was the 1980-81 president of the Academy, and he was a recipient of the AAO’s Andrew Taylor Still Medallion of Honor and the FAAO’s Distinguished Service Award.
The AAO’s Louisa Burns Osteopathic Research Committee (LBORC) is seeking research applications involving health care outcomes in the practice of osteopathic medicine, with an emphasis on using osteopathic manipulative medicine or treatment (OMM/OMT) in patient care.
