Barbara Ross-Lee, DO, Delivers Lecture to AOA House of Delegates

NYIT Vice President for Health Sciences and Medical Affairs , Barbara Ross-Lee, DO,  recently delivered the A.T. Still Memorial Lecture at the American Osteopathic Association’s Annual Business Meeting in Chicago.

"Osteopathic medicine is not what I do. It's who I am," Dr. Ross-Lee told members of the AOA House of Delegates as she began her lecture entitled "Osteopathic Medicine: Lead or Follow."

Drawing on the vision that A.T. Still, MD, DO, had for the osteopathic medical profession, Dr. Ross-Lee urged DOs to continue to uphold his legacy by practicing OMT and demonstrating osteopathic principles and practice in their daily lives. She said the best way for the osteopathic medical profession to distinguish itself is by innovating the practice of medicine.

As such, she listed several unmet public needs that offer DO's opportunities for innovation:

  • Primary care access
  • Technology integration and application
  • Innovation in medical education
  • Quality of life
  • Secondary care access
  • Chronic care
  • Global recognition
  • Neuromusculoskeletal conditions

"We're ready to lead," Dr. Ross Lee told the House of Delegates. "Let's do it."
