We received the following message via email late last night. Does anyone else think it is EXTREMELY ironic that a former president of the AOA would go to a large, allopathic institution to explore his options for treatment? Aren't small, osteopathic community hospitals capable of providing the same level of care? Why would you want to go anywhere else? Dear members of the osteopathic family: The AOA is saddened to announce that AOA President John A. Strosnider, DO, has fallen ill and been tentatively diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. While he is exploring all treatment options at the Cleveland Clinic, his prognosis remains uncertain. At this time, Dr. Strosnider has humbly requested that he needs no pity, but appreciates all prayers. If youd like to leave a message for Dr. Strosnider, you can do so on his blog (http://blogs.do-online.org/aoapresident.php) or send a note to him in care of the AOA. AOA staff will be posting information and monitoring the blog for Dr. Strosnider in the interim. Please keep Dr. Strosnider and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
