KIRKSVILLE, Mo. – The Museum of Osteopathic MedicineSM and the A.T. Still Research Institute (SRI) at A.T. Still University have been awarded $7,200 for “The Legacy Project.” The purpose of the project is to systematically capture video recordings and stories from osteopathic physicians and researchers whose careers significantly impacted the osteopathic profession through their leadership, clinical skill, teaching, mentorship, and research.
In 2011, the Cranial Academy Foundation awarded a $10,000 grant to the museum and SRI to preserve the stories, documents, and other meaningful information regarding the work of Viola M. Frymann, DO, FCA, FAAO.
“This additional grant from the Osteopathic Cranial Academy Foundation will help further our goal of collecting the history of those osteopathic physicians and researchers who have enriched the future of osteopathy,” said Debra Loguda-Summers, project director.
“I am saddened to learn that one or more great osteopaths have passed away each month. These dedicated professionals have contributed to the science of osteopathic medicine while helping those who suffer. The goal of ‘The Legacy Project ’is to preserve the knowledge, skill and history of these amazing healthcare leaders and healers for future generations.” said Jason Haxton, MA, museum director.
