The DO magazine wins prestigious award

Magazine recognized for its new direction; The DO is now focused on highlighting the perspectives of DOs and osteopathic medical students.


The AOA’s The DO magazine has received a 2023 Gold Circle Award for Best Digital Publication from the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE).

ASAE’s Gold Circle Awards recognize outstanding communications endeavors in the association community.

Last year, the AOA revamped The DO to focus on content produced by DOs and osteopathic medical students for DOs and osteopathic medical students. The transformation included assembling an editorial advisory board composed of DOs and osteopathic medical students and bringing on a DO to serve as editor in chief. AOA staff also redesigned the website.

“It has been an honor to serve as The DO’s editor in chief since the publication was revamped, and it is wonderful to see that the outside world appreciates the amazing work The DO’s staff, editorial advisory board and DO and medical student authors are producing,” says Vania Manipod, DO, The DO’s editor in chief.

Since the AOA revamped The DO, the magazine has published many thought-provoking articles on important issues in medicine, sharing the perspectives and viewpoints of various members of the osteopathic medical community. The magazine currently publishes several popular recurring columns, including those on advocacy, narrative medicine, retirement, diversity in medicine and medical school.
