Nearly 1,100 DOs and osteopathic medical students gathered this morning in Washington, DC, for DO Day on Capitol Hill. Throughout the day, participants met with members of Congress to discuss issues of concern for physicians and patients.
DOs and students convened with lawmakers to advocate for the establishment of policies to ease the burden of medical school debt, as well as measures to combat the growing opioid epidemic.
DO Day participants documented their activities throughout the day on social media using the hashtag #DODay2016.
