Physician to present osteopathic medicine program

James Rummel, doctor of osteopathy and resident physician in Jones Memorial Hospital’s Family Practice Office in Andover, will be presenting “Do you D.O.?: Osteopathic Medicine?” as part of Alfred University’s ongoing Bergren Forum Series.

The lecture will take place on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 12:10 p.m. in Nevins Theater located in Alfred University’s Powell Campus Center. It will be open to the public free of charge.

Osteopathy is characterized as an alternative medical practice which focuses on the relationship between structure and function of the body and recognizes its ability to heal itself. It is practiced in North America, Europe, and Australia, and is especially effective in the relief of lower back pain and in post-surgery hip and knee recovery.

 Rummel earned his doctor of osteopathy degree from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (PA).

 The Bergren Forum, sponsored by the Alfred University Division of Human Studies in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, meets Thursdays during each academic semester at the University. Participants are encouraged to bring a lunch; coffee and tea will be available.
