Way to go Ann medstud09 for sending the AOA a letter about the Time article.

TIME Publishes AOA Letter

Speaking of letters, President Strosnider also recently wrote to the Editors of TIME magazine regarding the article "Doctors Without Dollars," which appeared in the magazine’s 2/2/07 issue and included and inaccurate portrayal of OMT as a non-proven modality. The American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians (ACOFP) also advocated for fair representation of DOs by writing TIME Editors. Our advocacy did not go unheard! As reported on 2/17/07, TIME first posted President Strosnider’s letter on its Web site, highlighting the fact that DOs have parity with MDs as one of only two types of fully-licensed physicians practicing in America. We have now learned that the letter has been published in the 2/26/07 print edition. The letter can be read online, or you can see how it appeared in the print magazine by clicking this link.
