Dr. William Garner Sutherland, was born in 1873, and left this earth in 1954 at the age of 81. Anearly student of Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, Dr. Sutherland expanded osteopathy to include the cranium.
In doing so, he discovered the Primary Respiratory Mechanism. An involuntary physiologic mechanism. A fundamental expression of life itself. His influence on the Osteopathic Medical Profession cannot be overstated.
The Sutherland Memorial Lecture has been presented annually by esteemed members of the Osteopathic Cranial Academy (OCA) since 1958. The OCA is pleased to present this year’s Sutherland Memorial Lecturer, Dr. Mark Rosen.
Robert Fulford, DO FCA
Robert Fulford, DO FCA (1905-1997), one of my favorite teachers during my early years of training in Osteopathy, practiced osteopathic medicine until the age of 89. He left this earth at the age of 91. Dr. Fulford was a profoundly effective osteopathic physician who inspired many generations of DO’s to excel in this most promising medical practice.

Dr. Darick Nordstrom developed the ALF appliance with the goal of improving the overall health, beauty and function for the patient while providing a simple, effective and easy to wear family of dental appliances.
