History of the MOEF and the D.O. Campaign:

The MOEF Fundraising Committee officially launched the Distinguishing Ourselves: Preserving the Past and Preparing for the Future” fundraising campaign in June of 2013 and began with a gift in memory of Louis Hanson, DO. The original fundraising goal of $250,000 to build an endowment dedicated to the three goals stated above, was reached in the first 3 years of the campaign.  Further contributions are needed to protect and promote osteopathic medicine for generations to come.
