Welcome New Officers
April 14, 2014
Welcome to SAA's new board of directors for the upcoming 2014-2015 year:
President: Crystal Pulvino
Vice-President: Kimberlee Lowry
Secretary: Ryan Shillington
Treasurer: Lisa Smathers
For more than a century, osteopathic physicians have built a tradition of bringing health care to where it is needed most:
- Approximately 60% of practicing osteopathic physicians practice in the primary care specialties of family medicine, general internal medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics and gynecology.
- Many DOs fill a critical need for physicians by practicing in rural and other medically underserved communities.
- DOs practice a "whole person" approach to medicine. Instead of just treating you for specific symptoms or illnesses, they regard your body as an integrated whole.
In addition, these modern-day pioneers practice on the cutting edge of medicine. DOs combine today's medical technology with their ears to listen caringly to their patients, with their eyes to see their patients as whole persons, and with their hands to diagnose and treat patients for injury and illness.
SAA is so proud to support our Osteopathic Medical Students!
First Vice President: Victoria Martinez - married to Trent, class of 2016.
I'm so happy to be serving on the board this year! My husband is Trent, and will be starting his second year of med school. I'm currently working on my Bachelors in Fine Arts. I'm fairly new to Texas and we're both new to Fort Worth. SAA has helped me deal with living so far from family and friends and find people who really understand being married to a med student. I'm extremely thankful for the support everyone in the group offers. I hope to bring the same support to new members
Second Vice President: Leah Hanson - married to Gabe, class of 2016.
Secretary: Micah Casterline - married to Emily, class of 2016.
Treasurer: Chelsea Myers - married to John, class of 2016.
"I’m happy to be serving as this year’s SAA treasurer. My
husband John is starting his second year and I am finishing up my second degree
in nursing as well as working at Cook Children’s Hospital! This organization has
been and continues to be a great support for me during this crazy medical school
ride that we are all on!"

Welcoming the Class of 2016!
Tuesday, May 22, 2012Jordie Roitsch opened her home for members to relax and enjoy wine and other beverages provided by SAA. Guests brought a variety of desserts to satisfy their sweet tooth. It was a unique and simple idea to entertain on a spring night.

SAA members gathered for a semi-formal "masquerade"-themed evening of dinner and celebration honoring fourth year members. The new 2012-2013 board
members were also honored. It was definitely a night to remember.
I wonder what the theme will be for next year's senior dinner...
In the meantime, we have a full year ahead of us to get to know each other, support our significant others, and get involved in the great activities SAA has to offer. Here's to 2012-2013!
