OSU Center for Health Sciences President Kayse Shrum, D.O., along with fourth-year medical students Mercedez Bernard and Jake Whitener are featured in Oklahoma State University’s new marketing campaign, Are You a Cowboy?

The campaign features The Cowboy Code video and highlights the values that OSU works to instill in students. The video showcases several of the top programs offered in the OSU system, including osteopathic medicine. The footage featuring OSU Medicine was recorded in July, with assistance from OSU in Tulsa Marketing and Communications Services.

The commercial was first broadcast national on ABC on Saturday during the Oklahoma State football game against Florida State. Are you a Cowboy? Visit www.AreYouACowboy.com to take the quiz.
