On June 15, the KAOM Executive Committee met at the association office. Going way above and beyond the volunteer duties expected, Dr. Michael McClintick, immediate past president, with assistance from past president Dr. Ron Whitmer, and current president Dr. Russell Horn, took the time on a muggy, sunny day to tackle the jungle (the result of copious rain) and AT Still Park. (Pictured are Dr. McClintick on the L and Dr. Horn on the R.) Thank you to these doctors that DO!
The KAOM Mid-Year Conference - November 12-13, 2021- Wichita, KS
After two long years of no live meetings KOF and KAOM took the plunge and held a hybrid event on November 12-13, 2021 at the Wichita Marriott Hotel. The meeting was a success and most importantly it broke the ice and got DOs back to networking and learning! It was not an easy decision for the KAOM Board of Directors to make but through monitoring case counts and trends they decided on October 1, 2021 to proceed with the hybrid event (live and live streaming). From left to right: Victoria Moots, DO, popped into the conference from Kingman, KS to gift some remarkable photos - above is JB Donley's 1924 diploma from the American School of Osteopathy in Kirksville, MO - the original DO college in the U.S.; attendees take in the live presentation; Karen Evans, DO, KAOM President and Dan McCarty, DO, KAOM Immediate Past President chat at the start of the Friday President's Reception.
