A Second Voice, A Century of Osteopathic Medicine in Ohio
Doctors of osteopathic medicine today practice side by side with allopathic doctors, employing the same diagnostic and curative tools of scientific medicine, with a difference. A Second Voice: A Century of Osteopathic Medicine in Ohio is the story of that difference. Focusing on the historical experience of a pivotal midwestern state, author Carol Poh Miller illuminates struggles common to osteopathic medicine nationwide as it fought to secure its place in American healthcare.
Written in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the Ohio Osteopathic Association, A Second Voice traces the origins and growth of the profession in Ohio. It recounts the early legal battles, the establishment of separate osteopathic hospitals, and the hard-fought campaigns to win equal practice rights and to build a state college of osteopathic medicine. Finally, it reconsiders the notorious murder trial of Cleveland osteopathic physician Sam Sheppard in the context of his family's contributions to the osteopathic profession and a prosecution that, evidence has shown, fingered the wrong man.
A Second Voice is a valuable addition to the history of medicine in Ohio and the nation. To order a copy, go to Ohio University Press.
