Event Description

The AAO’s 2017 Convocation will be dedicated to exploring the balance between the art and science of osteopathic medicine. In an era focused on evidence-based medicine, it can be challenging to find a real world balance to the practice of osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM). The 2017 Convocation’s lectures will present cutting edge research in OMM and related topics that will have real world application to the attendees' medical practice. Breakout sessions will provide the opportunity to learn new techniques and protocols for managing common medical conditions and somatic dysfunctions and to explore new ways to approach the visualization of anatomy.

Natalie A. Nevins, DO, MSHPE, serves as the director of clinical education at the Western University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific in Pomona, California. She is the founder and CEO of AD World Health, a nonprofit for humanitarian aid. She also serves as the medical director for the Amrit Davaa Wellness Center in West Hollywood, California.

Board-certified in family medicine and in osteopathic manipulative medicine and neuromusculoskeletal medicine, Dr. Nevins earned a Master of Science in Health Professions Education in 1997.

Dr. Nevins served in the U.S. Air Force with deployments to Afghanistan, and she is currently a major in the U.S. Army Reserve, serving as the command flight surgeon for the Army Reserve Aviation Command at Fort Knox, Kentucky.
