This year the iO part-sponsored the annual osteopathic intercollege sports day held at the ESO. Students from the ESO, Swansea, UCO and BCOM were in attendance to compete in touch rugby, football, rounders, bubble football, a tug of war, a 5k run and volleyball. It was a great opportunity for the next generation of osteopaths to meet and take part in good-spirited competition.
The iO was represented by Communications Officer Claire Foster and Policy Lead Sarah North, who met with the osteopathic students and answered their questions about the role of the iO and developments within the profession.
Speaking about the event, Claire said; “Everyone seemed to have fun and took to opportunity to build connections with other students that hopefully will lead to productive professional relationships in the future. We want to see osteopaths working more closely with each other, so an event like this helps to bring people together.”
