The Feminine Touch

Have you seen "The Feminine Touch," a new PBS documentary that tells the story of women in Osteopathic Medicine?  It is inspired by the book, "The Feminine Touch: Women in Osteopathic Medicine" by Thomas Quinn, DO.

The documentary aired in April 2017 on WEDU, a PBS station in Tampa, Florida.  They recently secured a national feed, which means any PBS station nationwide will be able to record the feed and schedule the documentary to air on their local chanel.

Interested in helping raise awareness of DOs and osteopathic medicine?  Consider sending the following message to your local PBS station - you can look up your local station here.

I am interested in seeing a documentary called The Feminine Touch: The Struggle for Equality in Medicine.  It was produced by WEDU PBS in Tampa, Florida and will be feeding for national distribution on Nov. 2, 2017, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. ET on PBS satellite HD05.  I believe this program is of value to our community and hope to watch it on (local PBS station).

It is also available for free online viewing at
