Message to Delegates

This message was given to delegates by the Honorary President of ICAOR 2004:

Dr John Ferretti

“I would like to take this opportunity to invite conference attendees to ICAOR 2004 in Erie, Pennsylvania.  As a joint-effort between The Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and The British College of Osteopathic Medicine, next year’s event will be the first ICAOR conference ever to be held in the United States.   The Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine or LECOM, which is the host site for next year’s event is located on a twenty acre campus in beautiful North-western Pennsylvania, LECOM’s recently renovated facilities house a college of osteopathic medicine and school of pharmacy within approximately 155,000 square feet.   LECOM boasts some of the most modern and innovative education and conference technologies in the United States.

Located in the most North-western corner of the State of Pennsylvania, Erie lies roughly 100 miles from other larger U.S. cities such as Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Buffalo, NY, and Cleveland, Ohio.  While Erie is the fourth largest city in Pennsylvania, it is probably better characterised as a big town due to the warm and gracious nature of its residents.  Erie is well known for the Presque Isle State Park and its seven miles of fresh water beaches.  Over four million visitors are drawn to the Park each year to enjoy the natural beauty and numerous water sports offered.

I might add that Erie, Pennsylvania, in early September, is one of the most comfortable and beautiful places to visit in the United States.

Erie also offers a thriving arts and cultural scene that is remarkable for a city its size.  Whether you are interested in touring one of Erie’s museums, taking in a live concert on Erie’s Bayfront, or catching a comedy act – the quality of the performance is always first rate, the cost of admission is very reasonable, and the atmosphere is always friendly and relaxed.

I look forward to meeting you.”
