More than 40 OSU-CHS medical students are preparing to head to Washington, D.C. for DO Day on Capitol Hill set for Wednesday, April 13.

The annual event provides students the opportunity to discuss medical school and health policy issues, as well as legislation, with members of Congress and their staff. Last year, a number of OSU-COM students participated in the event although several meetings with lawmakers were cancelled due to inclement weather.

DO Day on Capitol Hill is hosted by the American Osteopathic Association. The student deadline for online registration is tomorrow. To register, visit the AOA website.
