The CMA is an organization of physicians and other experts working together to support physicians and advance the community through professional advocacy, education, and services.

This mission is accomplished through the guidance of our Board of Directors. By serving, board members are able to engage with a diverse group of colleagues from all specialties and systems and have the opportunity to lead the community of physicians in central Ohio.
