Dr. Larry Campbell, rural Oskaloosa, is president of the Kansas Association of Osteopathic Medicine.
The doctor was installed during the association’s annual convention in Overland Park April 10—just prior to the national observation of Osteopathic Medicine Week. He has served the association on the executive board for over six years.
The association, which celebrated its centennial in 2013, serves its members by providing continuing education and represents their interests before the state Legislature.
The new president said he hopes to build membership among the 850 practicing doctors of osteopathic medicine in Kansas.
Campbell, 64, is a St. Joseph, Mo., native who practiced medicine in Sedan before purchasing interest in the Jefferson County medical clinics along with Dr. James Rider in 1991.
His main office at the beginning was the former Winchester clinic of the late Dr. F.W. Huston. He is still there most afternoons, but also serves the clinics in Oskaloosa and Valley Falls. The doctors also serve a clinic in Nortonville.
Campbell and Rider sold the medical practice to St. Francis Health Center 15 years ago and are employees of that health system. However, they own the four clinics, which are leased to St. Francis.
Campbell and his wife, Janice, have two children, Lorrie Campbell, who is a doctor of osteopathic medicine in Jefferson City, Mo., and James Campbell, a pharmacist, in Sedan. They have four grandchildren.
