Our mission is to support and promote the osteopathic profession. Our Advocate network is vast, ranging from physicians to friends to office staff. We cover the globe, creating a strong, close network of people who understand that osteopathic medicine isn't a trend or a passing fad, but the best type of medical care possible.


Join The Advocates at OMED 2014 for the annual Advocates Fore You Golf Tournament. Compete individually or as part of your school's team in the Collegiate Challenge! Registration forms are available here.


Another FUN event planned for OMED is the 5k Still Fit for Life Fun Run/Walk. Entrance fees support the Special Projects Fund as well as this year's selected charity, Art With Heart. Art With Heart helps children overcome traumas by expressing themselves creatively. Click here for Fun Run registration forms.


All OMED participants are invited for lunch atop the famous Seattle Space Needle with access to the Observation Deck to enjoy the view. Afterwards, enjoy a hosted tour of the Chihuly Glass and Garden below, and linger until closing if desired. Click here to register.
