Cont-RIB-utions To Resolutions OSU-COM

SAAO is proud to announce the first annual “Cont-RIB-utions to Resolutions” January Virtual Wellness Challenge! This event is a continuation of our previous Skeleton 5k Dash and last year's Move Your Bones virtual event. The Move Your Bones challenge was an amazing event, with tons of community involvement, learning, & fun while integrating our two campuses and incorporating COVID precautions. Thank you if you participated last year and we look forward to even more participation this year! 

This year to better integrate both our Tulsa and Cherokee Nation campuses, we have decided to host our event virtually again. This way we would achieve our goals of building a community centered around the pursuit of holistic health, spreading awareness about Osteopathic Manual Medicine,  and fundraising for OSU-COM's SAAO club while allowing the safest and most opportunity for participation. The Cont-RIB-utions to Resolutions wellness challenge in the month of January is designed to do all those things, all while providing incentive to achieve those New Year Resolutions of improving health and wellness.

Here are the 5 components of Cont-RIB-utions to Resolutions!

1. Be healthy!  - This event includes challenges to run, bike, swim, practice OMM, hike, (and more!) as much as possible during the month of January. Many of us still have some social distancing weight to lose and this event provides motivation to keep those resolutions to lose this extra weight or be more healthy in general.

2. Challenge yourself - During the month you can participate in as many different types of activities as you want! Get out of your comfort zone and try something that you don't normally do for fitness.  PLUS the winners for each activity will be based solely on the amount of minutes completed, it's all about effort. Anyone can win!

3. Support SAAO - Proceeds from the event will help us to raise funds for our local chapter so that we can plan great events, keep our local membership dues as low as possible, and send representatives from our club to the American Academy of Osteopathy Convocation.

4.  ~Win Prizes~ Every challenge winner (most minutes completed) in all activities will receive a prize! (Possible prizes include but are not limited to... gift cards from QT, Casey's, Amazon, Fleet Feet, & Gearhead). The OSUCOM student that wins most minutes of OMM outside of class will win a full OMT treatment and . . .

ALL OSU-COM students that participate will be entered into a raffle to win 1 of 3 possible OMM tables!

5. Give back - Osteopathic medical care considers the whole person as a single unit, including mind, body, & spirit. This principle extends both to our patients and to those we encounter in our community, especially those that do not always experience the care that they need. To help support our extended Tulsa community, SAAO will also incorporate a CAN-uary drive. For every registration SAAO will donate a can of food those experiencing homelessness in Tulsa (to be distributed via the local Food Bank). And for every $5 dollars that we raise in simple donations we will donate an additional can. PLUS. . . for every pair of socks purchased, we will donate a pair to City Lights Foundation of Oklahoma.

What more could you want from a wellness challenge?

We hope that you will join us this month in some Cont-RIB-utions to Resolutions in January! Throughout the month we will be partnering with wellness groups on both the Tulsa and CN campuses for some in-person opportunities, or you can complete all of your activities at home. The major bright side to our online challenge is that because it's virtual, it is open not only to people who can travel to Tulsa but also throughout the world where our extended OSU medicine family lives. Please invite your family and friends to participate!


More about OMM & Osteopathic Medicine & SAAO

One of the core principles of Osteopathic Medicine is the idea that the body is one unit including body, mind, and spirit, and therefore a holistic approach must be employed in order to provide optimum patient care. One of the unique ways that osteopathic physicians are able to incorporate these principles is through the practice of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, or OMM. OMM is a compilation of techniques, that work to restore the body’s innate healing capabilities. Although applicable in many different disciplines, OMM is particularly notable for its capabilities in restoring somatic dysfunctions and pain reduction. Osteopathic physicians are able to use their hands as tools when treating patients, potentially providing a service, in addition to medication, that increases patients’ quality of life. SAAO is linked uniquely in this mission at OSU-COM because it is the student club that is dedicated to learning and promoting OMM.
