Department of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine

Appointment of New Department Acting Chair

Congratulations to
Sheldon Yao, D.O.


Dr. Yao graduated from the College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2002 and worked as a family care doctor-a long-held career aspiration-before returning to teach as an assistant professor of osteopathic manipulative medicine.

His research revolves around the impact of OMT on people with asthma, recently collaborated with other faculty members and students on a study correlating OMT techniques-rib raising, occipitoatlantal release, and thoracic pump-to alleviating stress in 25 second-year NYIT students about to take their board exams.

"I'm very lucky and proud of the department I work in," Yao says. "We're always trying to further the understanding and science of osteopathic medicine to the best of our ability."
