October 20, 2020

The AOF is proud to name Carrie Janiski, DO, as the 2020 James M. Lally, DO, National Emerging Leader. Triple board-certified in sports medicine, family medicine, and NMM/OMM, Dr. Janiski is the Director of Sports & Musculoskeletal Medicine and the Director of Medical Education for Romeo Medical Clinic in Turlock, California. Additionally, she serves as Head Team Physician for California State University - Stanislaus and John Pitman High School.

Dr. Janiski is a highly motivated leader focused on improving educational opportunities for DOs in her state, particularly around osteopathic principles and practice. She sits on the Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons of California’s (OPSC) Board of Directors and is Chair of its Education Committee, where her leadership “has led to an improvement in our educational offerings around CME events,” says Nicholas Birtcil, OPSC Executive Director. “Dr. Janiski exemplifies not only what it means to be a physician, but an osteopathic physician. During a time when the osteopathic profession is debating its own identity, Dr. Janiski dedicates her time to educating the next generation of physician leaders on the principles of osteopathic medicine, OMM, and personal mental and physical health.”

Dr. Janiski earned her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MSUCOM) in 2010, where she also attained a Master’s degree in Kinesiology. She completed an NMM/OMM residency at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, A Family Practice residency at Western Michigan University School of Medicine, and a Primary Care Sports Medicine fellowship at MSUCOM.

Outside of her many professional and leadership responsibilities, Dr. Janiski is committed to volunteering in her community, bringing access to care to underserved populations, and encouraging health and wellness as a yoga teacher.
