    Hello everyone!

    I am forming an osteopathic organization at UCSD and need any support from anyone that can help. The biggest thing that we need is literature, so if anyone has any D.O.-related books they can donate that they are not using anymore, our organization would benefit from your donation.

    Any other support would be greatly appreciated. Response at UCSD has been very positive and I would like the first meeting in November to be a very good one. If you think you can help, please email me at [email protected] Thank you!

    Sincerely,

    Arnold you will definitely need to get a hold of "The DOs" by Gevitz. If I can dig mine up you can have it.

    Thanks miglo! That was the one book the officers and I were going to get first. If you're willing to part with it, they would greatly appreciate it.

    Let me know if you want to do it.

    Thanks!

    I'd recommend contacting the STUDENT OSTEOPATHIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (SOMA) and the STILL NATIONAL OSTEOPATHIC MUSEUM. Both offer great opportunities for students to learn about osteopathic medicine. And being a member of both looks nice on your application. And SNOM offers discounts to members on books, etc. that pertain to osteopathic history.

    Good work and good luck! If I can help at all, e-mail me at [email protected]

    Thank you Gregory!

    I actually contacted SOMA already via email and am waiting for their response. I am going to try and call them directly tomorrow.

    If you can tell me who I can contact about SNOM, please let me know.

    I really appreciate the help!

    Arnold, visit SNOM's webpage at:

    http://www.kcom.edu/museum/

    If I were you, I'd contact them and have them mail you information about joining, etc. Then make that information (or at the very least, the phone number/address, etc.) available at your first meeting.

    One other thing I might do is contact your state osteopathic organization. Here in Florida I was able to join the Florida Osteopathic Medical Association as a student.

    Feel free to e-mail me anytime, Arnold: [email protected] I'll help out in any way possible.

    Best of luck to you.
