Description


DO Day on Capitol Hill, set for Monday - Tuesday, March 4 - 5, 2019, is an exciting opportunity for DOs and osteopathic medical students to come to Washington, DC and educate Members of Congress and their staff on who DOs are, why osteopathic medicine is so important, and what the most important issues affecting the profession. Registration for DO Day 2018 is open from December 14, 2018 through February 8, 2019.

Travel and lodging: The AOA has reserved a block of rooms at the JW Marriott that can be reserved at a discounted rate of $375 per night using this link. The hotel is located at 1331 Pennsylvania Ave, Washington, DC.

Registration, training and networking receptions are tentatively set to begin at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, March 4th. Any registered participants who do not check-in on Monday need to arrive no later than 5:45 a.m. on Tuesday morning, March 5th. The day will begin with a breakfast briefing that includes presentations by guest speakers on how to best communicate with Members of Congress, the issues you will be discussing, and the importance of representing the osteopathic profession on Capitol Hill. Following the briefing, you will go to Capitol Hill with your colleagues to meet with your Congressional representatives throughout the day. DO Day activities and Congressional meetings will conclude by 7:00 pm EST on Tuesday, March 5th.

Enhanced Experience: This year, the AOA is enhancing the DO Day on Capitol Hill experience by providing a more robust training platform, a real-time mobile tool, potential additional meetings, and a team of your colleagues to help guide you throughout the day. Unlike previous years, you will receive your hill meeting schedule via the mobile tool up to 1-3 days before the event. In addition, the mobile tool will provide:

  • Preliminary schedules (pre-DO Day)
  • Your personal schedule
  • Real-time schedule changes
  • Seamless notation of key committees, co-sponsors, etc.
  • System-wide day-of-event alerts
  • Meeting feedback
  • Links to Members of Congress' bios
  • Photo upload
  • Live help desk
  • And more

To provide a better experience for DO Day attendees, we implemented a registration fee for all attendees. We are confident you will love the changes to this year’s DO Day on Capitol Hill. Registration is follows (not including fees):
