We are your voice for the thriving osteopathic community in the military. We are the defenders of your rightful place at the table we call medicine. This is where the PBS fund raising marathons start asking for donation’s—be we are a member’s organization. We don’t want your donations, we want your involvement. We need your presence. For those who have gone before us, we need your experience; to lead, inspire and teach the junior officers. For those of us mid-career—we need to maintain the connections and build our professionalism. For those who are just starting this journey—we need you to come take your place at the table, and be ready to fill our shoes as we move on. We need your membership. We want your interaction. We need your friendship. So, please join or renew your membership, register for the conference. Be present in 2018.
