This is the time of year for giving thanks. The Michigan Osteopathic Association would like to thank all of our wonderful members & partners who make up the fabric of the DO Family in Michigan. 

Safe travels and well wishes to you this holiday weekend!
The Michigan Osteopathic Association (MOA), the American Osteopathic Foundation (AOF) and the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MSUCOM) joined efforts in the Magic Johnson Foundation's 2015 "Holiday of Hope." The program distributes Thanksgiving meals, toys, books and winter coats to deserving families. This season, the program distributed nearly $1,000,000 in meals, books and clothing.
We would like to thank MOA Board of Trustee members Dr. Bruce Wolf, Dr. Jeff Postlewaite and MSUCOM Student Duncan McGuire for joining the MOA staff for Holiday of Hope. 

"Please let me send my very heartfelt thank you to my longtime friend Kris Nicholoff for bringing together the Michigan Osteopathic Association, the American Osteopathic Foundation & medical students from Michigan State University's College of Osteopathic Medicine for my hometown community.  Kris & I have worked hand in hand for over 25 years to provide healthy opportunities for the underserved.  I'm already looking forward to our next opportunity to partner together."

The MSU Spartan Basketball team had the height advantage, as well as the most fan recognition. Coach Tom Izzo was incognito with a huge smile that usually does not appear until March. 

During the week, MOA staff helped stuff over 800 bags of donated items.
