Congratulations to Board Member Barbara Walker, DO, who was recently elected President of the American Association of Osteopathic Examiners (AAOE). The AAOE is the organization that supports the “distinctiveness and integrity” of osteopathic medical licensure. It is the unified authority in matters that affect osteopathic medical licensure and discipline.

Walker currently practices as a contracted family physician with New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington. Over the course of her career, Walker has been a vocal advocate for the osteopathic medical profession. She has been an active member of the American Osteopathic Association, of which she is currently a trustee, as well as the American Academy of Osteopathy and American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians, since 1980. She has been active in the North Carolina Osteopathic Medical Association since 1990 and in the North Carolina Osteopathic Family Physicians since 2004.

Walker was appointed to the North Carolina Medical Board in November 2013. She is the second DO ever to be appointed to the North Carolina Medical Board and currently serves as the Board’s Secretary/Treasurer.
