The Oklahoma Osteopathic Association works diligently to monitor and impact legislation that affects osteopathic medicine in Oklahoma.
We are thankful to state leaders for the appropriation to our osteopathic teaching hospital, the OSU Medical Center (OSUMC). The OOA is proud the osteopathic family achieved this funding, now on an annual basis, and will ensure unparalleled service to the public well into the future.
The OOA also works to defend against scope of practice overreaches and excessive regulations that hinder access to care for our patients. With your proactive advocacy, we will continue our efforts to provide only the best health care for Oklahomans.
The 56th Legislative session was a full of challenges for the osteopathic profession and physician community as a whole. Your association worked hard to defend against multiple scope of practice overreaches and narrowed down many proposed bills that dealt directly with opioids into a few, focused pieces of legislation.
