ATSU-SOMA student participates in CHC tour with U.S. surgeon general

July 31, 2019
Posted In: Arizona Campus, Community Health Centers, SOMA, Student Headlines

Brysen Keith, third-year student at A.T. Still University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona (ATSU-SOMA), was recently invited to participate in a conversation with U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams, MD, MPH. Dr. Adams was touring Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center, where Keith is completing his clinical rotations. Keith, who serves in the U.S. Navy, was proud to represent ATSU and advocate for the osteopathic profession.

According to Keith, they discussed important topics in healthcare, including addiction, lifestyle medicine, serving the underserved, and the osteopathic philosophy.

“Dr. Adams’ motto is ‘better health through better partnerships,’ something I believe is truly exemplified by community health centers that work to serve their population through the lens of body, mind, and spirit, and true whole person health,” says Keith. “It is so important in today’s healthcare that we recognize medicine is best practice when treating the person, not the disease, and that we all need holistic medical and spiritual support to obtain true health. I am so thankful to be part of a school, profession, and military branch that afford me such amazing opportunities.”
