Canada Post Publishes World Osteopathy Day Stamps

On Nov 11, 2014, Canada Post published World Osteopathy Day stamps, designed by Dr Shahin Pourgol (, president of the National Academy of Osteopathy & the National University of Medical Sciences, the largest providers of manual osteopathic education worldwide.

Osteopathy, since it was founded over 137 years ago by Dr Still in the USA, had never had a day of its own until 2012 when Dr Pourgol founded June 22nd as the World Osteopathy Day.

Dr Pourgol's mission is to have manual osteopathic care available to patients in every corner of the world. Manual osteopathy has been introduced to many countries such as Tanzania, Brunei, and Cameroon because of NAO and NUMSS, as they teach in 45 countries.
