In late October, I was fortunate to photograph the 2019 American Osteopathic Foundation’s annual gala and awards ceremony at the Hilton-Inner Harbor in Baltimore. I wasn’t even sure what an osteopathic doctor did – and I learned a lot that evening. At the very least, they are a compassionate community of physicians who really love and believe in what they do, and it was a very thoughtful crowd of people who enjoyed being in each other’s company. Awards were given, standout doctors were recognized, scholarships were handed out, and a one million dollar check was emotionally accepted to provide future scholarships. Afterwards, the group capped off the evening with a candy bar, drinks, and dancing to a live band.
