SGA TOUCH Program
In Partnership with the COSGP
TOUCH, Translating Osteopathic Understanding into Community Health, is a national initiative of the Council of Osteopathic Student Government Presidents (COSGP). The goal of the program is to encourage and recognize osteopathic medical students to work towards improving the health of their local community through service. The program recognizes these efforts both locally and nationally. Creating a solid foundation of standards in which to acknowledge students is an essential part of substantiating their commitments. In accordance with the osteopathic philosophy of “treating the whole patient,” service goes beyond mere health promotion and can include a wide array of involvement that has a strong positive impact on people’s lives.
The TOUCH program encourages all osteopathic medical students to become more involved in community service. In this program, students are recognized for their spent in the community. The revised documentation and information to implement this program on your campus can be found through the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine SGA. For questions concerning the TOUCH program, please contact the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine SGA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
