A.T. Still University-Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM) Biomedical Sciences Club, in conjunction with Osteopathic Pride & Service Committee, presented a series of events Oct. 14-18, 2013, focusing on compassion and humanism in service to others. This week is observed by ATSU as part of Day of Compassion.

On Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2004, American Connection Flight 5966 crashed while traveling from St. Louis, Mo. to Kirksville. Most of the passengers were on their way to ATSU for a conference focused on developing a compassionate campus. The plane crash claimed the lives of 11 of the 13 passengers and both members of the crew. Eight of the 15 on board were members of the ATSU-KCOM osteopathic community, six of whom were tragically killed in the crash. Day of Compassion was created to honor those killed in the crash.                

Students participated in various service and community projects to benefit a food bank and a local family recently displaced by fire. Activities included everything from a soup cook-off to participating in Truman State University’s homecoming parade. Christopher Halliday, DDS, MPH, dean, ATSU-Missouri School of Dentistry & Oral Health, gave a presentation to students on his experiences in the U.S. Public Health Service.

The annual Clark B. Ator, DO, Memorial Financial Award was presented to Micheal McGrew, OMS II.
