AOA commends Senate for unanimously adopting resolution on National Osteopathic Medicine Week

U.S. Senate unanimously passes NOM Week resolution.

The AOA commends members of the United States Senate for adopting a resolution designating April 18-24, 2022, as National Osteopathic Medicine Week.

“The American Osteopathic Association (AOA) thanks Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Roger Wicker (R-MS) for their leadership on the resolution designating the week of April 18-24 as National Osteopathic Medicine Week,” said Joseph A. Giaimo, DO, MACOI, FCCP, president of the AOA. “This resolution recognizes the many contributions of osteopathic physicians to the United States health care system throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as our emphasis on a whole-person approach to health care delivery in communities across the country that focuses not just on caring for people when they are sick but on keeping them well.”

The resolution, which was adopted by the United States Senate by unanimous consent, recognizes the significant role that DOs have had in the United States health care system since the founding of osteopathic medicine, and the commitment of DOs and osteopathic medical students to improving the health of their communities.
