September is National Osteopathic Medicine Month. Please make an opportunity to visit The New England Osteopathic Heritage Center's exhibit in the Alfond Center on the University of New England's Biddeford, Maine campus. The material for this exhibit was created by Gretchen Sibley, DO, and is sponsored by NEOHC and the Maine Osteopathic Association. NEOHC, created to honor and preserve the unique history of osteopathic medicine in New England, is located in the Weeks Room of the Jack S. Ketchum Library.
This exhibit highlights the fascinating history of osteopathic medicine as told in images, documents, artifacts and text, illustrating its almost 150-year existence from its inception to the present day and inclusive of the important role of the MOA and the creation of UNE College of Osteopathic Medicine in Maine. It will be on display for six weeks, beginning September 1st and will change every two weeks.
