For more than 70 years, the power of the American Osteopathic Foundation has been generated through the collective commitment of the profession. We know that together we do more. With the strength and vision of our partners, we continued to advance outstanding work, making a positive, impactful difference.
As COVID-19 came into focus in early 2020, the Foundation, with the steadfast leadership of its Board and dedicated staff did what was needed to help those around us. We researched and vetted resources to share with our partner nonprofits. With the assistance of marketing, strategic planning, and investment professionals, we hosted a webinar that provided practical advice to weather the storm.
Scripps Research DETECT Study
We engaged as a partner in the Scripps Research DETECT Study to promote the use of wearable devices in spotting viral outbreaks such as COVID-19. Since this summer, the Foundation and its network of physicians, industry supporters, and affiliates have been informing and engaging a wide audience about participation in the DETECT study to provide valuable input on addressing significant research questions.
To broaden the reach of this important work, we've partnered with the Mississippi Osteopathic Medical Association to target underserved, rural populations throughout the state. Learn more about this targeted outreach.
