It is my senior year in highschool, and as I look back at the years I have spent with my small town community I realize the amount of influence that different social groups grant upon others. Growing up with lots of different types of friendships has taught me many things about people and I have also learned a lot about myself.

Daylight fades into the deep, striking black hue of night as the smoky aroma of freshly barbequed meat fills the air. I lean back in a rich, wooden lounge chair across from my cousin, who chuckles telling stories from her college years. Her cropped, sun bleached hair, which normally rests in a swaying shoulder cut is tied in a loose knot today.

I was first introduced to osteopathic medicine when my older sister came home eager to perform osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) techniques on my family members. We were unfamiliar with osteopathic medicine and began to wonder why we had not heard about this type of practice.
