ROCKPORT — Thomas DeLuca, D.O., of Rumford was awarded the 2010 Distinguished Service Award at the Maine Osteopathic Association’s 99th Annual Oceanside Convention recently in Rockport.

The award is presented to a osteopathic doctor who has made an immediate significant contribution to the osteopathic profession through a major endeavor for the good of the profession and society, and has made a major impact on the osteopathic profession and society over the course of his/her career.

Dr. DeLuca has spent the last decade in service to the Maine Osteopathic Association, rising through the leadership ranks, serving as president of the association as well as a multi-year representative to the American Osteopathic Association House of Delegates. He continues to be involved with the board of directors and has assisted with a number of initiatives.

He has worked as a primary care internist in his own practice for many years. His work at the state, national and federal levels may be dwarfed only by his love for his family and the great outdoors.
