The American Academy of Osteopathy Louisa Burns Osteopathic Research Committee recently awarded OSU-CHS resident Leslie Mae-Green Ching, D.O., with first place clinical research for her poster presentation on the use of osteopathic manipulative medicine at the nation’s first osteopathic treatment center for mental and physical disorders.
A neuromusculoskeletal medicine and OMM resident, Ching received the award for “Comparison of Patient Records from the Still-Hildreth Sanitorium with Published Reports,” the first known published review of patient data from the historic institution. She will receive a recognition certificate and an engraved trophy. The poster was on display at the AAO Convocation in Colorado Springs, Colo. in March.
Ching’s research includes a comparison of patient records from the 1910s to the 1930s with SHS statistics on treatments for psychiatric conditions. She is currently working on expanding the project as part of her residency research, examining more patient charts, literature reviews and interviews with SHS staff.
