  1. Former AOA staff member Karen Bjorkman Stipp, 78, died June 14. During her more than 20 years editing osteopathic medical research for publication in “The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association,” Stipp worked with many of the profession’s leading researchers, and she helped groom young DO and PhD researchers as medical writers.
