The Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine-Harlem is committed to training osteopathic physicians with a particular emphasis on practicing medicine in underserved communities, and to increasing the number of underrepresented minorities in medicine. Three DOs—Rhoda Amiseng, Tatiana Carrillo, and Gabrielle Jasmin—are quintessential examples of both aspects of that very mission. Recently, these three students were chosen to speak at the TouroCOM-Harlem parlor meeting fundraiser to raise donations for underrepresented minorities, which raised nearly $66,000 in scholarships for TouroCOM-Harlem. Here, get to know these inspiring women even better.

Dressed as skeletons in the spirit of Halloween, a group of three student physicians—Anthony Bonzagni, Daniel Lee, and Dhaatri Kuchipudi—delivered a fun, interactive lesson about bones to the first-grade class of New Beginnings Montessori School. Two TouroCOM-Middletown faculty members joined the students in the presentation: Professor Leah Labranche, anatomy instructor, and Dr. Martin Torrents, Associate Chair of the Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine Department. The TouroCOM presenters taught the children different ways of keeping their bones strong, such as eating healthy foods like vegetables and calcium-rich dairy products, and emphasized the importance of physical exercise in maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle. They engaged the children in the lesson by performing a short skit about an “ailing skeleton” and having the first-graders dance, jump, and run in place to “revive” him.
