The Advocates for the POMA

A Message from the APOMA President

The Advocates for the POMA held a successful meeting on August 6, 2016, in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

APOMA presented the POMA Foundation with a check in the amount of $13,000 to support stethoscopes for first-year osteopathic medical students at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM), LECOM at Seton Hill, and students who are residents of Pennsylvania that attend the LECOM Bradenton in Florida.

Please encourage your spouse or anyone you know who is interested in further promoting the osteopathic profession to join us!
