The American Osteopathic Association recently honored several UNT Health Science Center physicians as Unsung Heroes.

Those honored were Thomas Crow, DO, Professor of Osteopathic Medicine; John Bowling, DO, Assistant Dean of Rural Medical Education; Russell Gamber, DO, MPH, Adjunct Professor of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine; Janice Knebl, DO, MBA, Professor of Internal Medicine; John Licciardone, DO, MS, MBA, Professor of Medical Education; and Monte Troutman, DO, Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine.

The AOA defines an Unsung Hero as "an osteopathic physician who has enhanced the image of osteopathic medicine by living each day as an example of what an osteopathic physician should be. Serving as an outstanding physician and role model, he or she enhances the profession, creates opportunities for current and future DOs, and instills pride in being a DO and a member of the AOA."

Also, the AOA honored several UNTHSC physicians as Guardians of the Profession. They were Bowling; Darrin D’Agostino, DO, MPH, Chairman, Internal Medicine; Gamber; Kendi Hensel, DO, PhD, Assistant Professor, Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine; David Mason, DO, Chairman, Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine; and Troutman.

Guardians are those who "advance the culture of osteopathic medicine by having served in a local, state or national osteopathic leadership role. A Guardian also demonstrates a strong sense of pride in the osteopathic medical profession and works actively to advance osteopathic medicine with colleagues and the general public."
