Nominations Accepted for COA Awards Program
COA is accepting nominations for two awards, which will be presented at the 2008 Annual Meeting: the James F. Sosnowski, DO, Distinguished Service Award and the William I. Linder, DO, Advocate Award. To submit a nomination, simply call the COA Office for a faxed copy of the nomination form.
The Sosnowski Distinguished Service Award is given annually to a COA member in memory of the only osteopathic physician killed in Vietnam. The award, established in 1988, honors those who have made lifelong contributions to the osteopathic profession and/or the community. The recipient may be retired from active practice.
The Linder Advocate Award, created in 1997, simultaneously honors Dr. Linder, who served as editor of the COA publication The Advocate, as well as an individual who is a strong supporter and activist for osteopathic medicine.
