AOA Announces Virtual OMED 2020

The AOA has made the following announcement concerning OMED 2020:

Although we are greatly disappointed that COVID-19 will preclude an in-person meeting, we’re excited to launch a one-of-a-kind virtual OMED conference, coming your way this October.

Recognizing the health and safety of DOs and medical students as a top priority, the trustees considered the current pandemic status and existing restrictions, as well as the possibility of a fall COVID-19 resurgence as critical factors in this decision.

Because we know many of you were excited to attend OMED in Austin and the Texas Osteopathic Medical Association looked forward to welcoming attendees to the Lone Star State, we are happy to report we have rebooked in Austin for OMED 2026.

We know this change will result in a number of critical questions regarding the event schedule, presentation platform, content, and CME credit. We assure you that we will work collaboratively and expeditiously with our stakeholders for input before any decisions are made or announced.

Please email your questions to ceo@osteopathic.org. We will monitor submissions and respond accordingly, as well as post our responses to the OMED 2020 FAQ web page.

 

October 15-19

Join your fellow AOASM peers virtually at OMED. For more OMED 2020 conference registration information, go to https://omed.osteopathic.org.

American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine at OMED 2020

President: William Kuprevich, DO, FAOASM

AOASM OMED Program Chair: Blake Boggess, DO, FAOASM  

Program at a Glance:

The American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine (AOASM) will present “The 2020 Vision of Health and Fitness”.  The program includes cutting edge and evidence based sports medicine topics relevant to physicians in all specialties. The presentations will provide diverse, in-depth discussions including health, exercise, fitness, musculoskeletal radiology, physical therapy, sideline emergencies and sports medicine guidelines.  

Our educational focus this year is on health and wellness, as well as performance enhancement of both athletes and non-athletes. As you attend the meeting, think of how you can improve your overall wellness and translate that into caring for your patients. The osteopathic tenets of health and wellness are very much the 2020 focus and we envision this meeting will serve as a launch pad to improving your own health through good nutrition and exercise.
