Who D.O. You Hug?

In the osteopathic medical profession, we have our own secret handshake. It's called the "DO hug". It's a symbol of our unique bond, sense of family, and our belief in the power of touch." --- AOA President Norman Vinn, DO.
Honoring a Legend: Andrew Taylor Still, M.D., D.O.
Did you know that Missouri is the birthplace of the osteopathic medical profession? In 1874, Andrew Taylor Still, M.D., D.O., formulated the basic principles of osteopathic medicine, and in 1892, the first osteopathic school of medicine was opened in Kirksville, Mo.
More than 100 years later, Dr. Still was honored for his contributions to the medical community and the world by becoming the first person ever to be elected via popular vote to the Hall of Famous Missourians on none other than Missouri Osteopathic Medicine Awareness Day, which was held on April 16, 2014.
The Missouri Association of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons (MAOPS) spearheaded the campaign to get Dr. Still on the ballot for consideration, and their efforts paid off as hundreds of onlookers filed into the Missouri State Capitol in Jefferson City to watch the unveiling of Still's bronze statue that was later placed in the Hall of Famous Missourians.
MAOPS, in conjunction with Your Health Productions, created a documentary of the induction ceremony.
