Tarrant County Commissioners recognize National Osteopathic Medicine Week
Student-led activities have marked National Osteopathic Medicine Week on the UNTHSC campus all week.
NOM Week brings the osteopathic medical profession together to focus on the common goal of increasing awareness of osteopathic medicine and osteopathic physicians (DOs) in communities across the nation.
Earlier in this week, Tarrant County commissioners issued a proclamation in honor of the observance.
Health Science Center campus activities culminated Friday with Jim Froelich, DO (TCOM ’81) of Bonham, Texas, spoke on "The History of Osteopathic Medicine in Texas." His talk was sponsored by the Texas Osteopathic Medical Association. Dr. Froelich is a TOMA past president.
