President's Message

Achievement Summary

By Carl Backes, DO, FACOP, FAAP
ACOP President

Carl Backes, DO, FACOP, FAAP

Carl Backes, DO, FACOP, FAAP


This will be my final President’s Message. This April, Ed Packer, DO, FACOP will assume that responsibility. It has been an honor to serve the ACOP these past two years. We have opened many doors with our ongoing goal of standing strong in support of osteopathic pediatricians.

I’d like to summarize our achievements and plans for the immediate future:

As I said in August 2016, the ACOP must grow in numbers and promote what we represent - an osteopathic approach to our patients using an additional tool, OMM, to diagnose and treat our patients and an educational source for us and osteopathic students, residents and fellows.

Finally, I am honored to have been asked to present the Annual Watson Memorial Lecture. I will discuss Osteopathic Pediatrics – Past, Present and Future: Medical Education in the Era of Single Accreditation.

Thank you for allowing me the privilege of being your president and I extend a warm welcome to Dr. Packer.
