American Academy of Osteopathy (AAO) Convocation

Location:The Broadmoor

Date & Time: 2020-03-1117:00:00
Event Type: Public
  • Site: Other

Osteopathic medicine provides patients, physicians and communities the opportunity to explore health from all perspectives, and it integrates mind, body and spirit into the provision of care and education. The 2020 Convocation, in the inherently inspirational setting of Colorado Springs, will provide experiences for integrating such concepts as nutrition, functional medicine, movement therapy, exercise prescription, injection modalities, and team care approaches into the osteopathic care of patients and self-care of physicians.

Attendees will learn through energizing lectures and interactive workshops how to implement innovations in their own practice of osteopathic medicine, and they will leave with practical knowledge and confidence in implementing these ideas directly with their patients. There also will be time dedicated to expanding personal wellness and exploring individual health transformation.

Additionally, osteopathic educators will have opportunities to explore innovations in the changing environment of medical education as we extend osteopathic medicine into a broader arena.

Registration can be found here and closes March 15, 2020:
