FUTURE DOs - LAWRENCE LAVINE, DO - VISION
Lawrence Lavine, DO has rightly earned some fame for his treatment of Apolo Ohno
during the Winter Olympics last February – but that story is worth more than a gold
medal – it’s a story of one DO’s commitment to his patient, and his responsibility to the
DOs who will come after him.
Responsibility to Future Generations
Echoing Dr. Lavine’s vision, the AOA is spearheading efforts to improve osteopathic
graduate medical education.
