Nearly 50 OSU-COM students, faculty and administrators met yesterday with members of Congress in Washington, D.C. to discuss medical school and health policy issues during D.O. Day on Capitol Hill.
Students spoke with lawmakers and staff about student debt, opioid abuse and other health care issues. The group was also recognized on the floors of the House and Senate.
D.O. Day on Capitol Hill is organized by the American Osteopathic Association, which arranges issue briefings and meetings with lawmakers and their staffs throughout the day for osteopathic medical students from across the nation. The annual event provides an opportunity for osteopathic physicians and medical students to educate members of Congress about osteopathic medicine.
