VIRTUAL EVENT: Advocating For Health: Legislative Training for Physicians
Do you have issues that you care about on a professional or personal level? Are you interested to have your voice heard by those elected officials who make decisions on those issues? Want to learn more about public policy and how it directly impacts physicians and their patients?
The CMA is ready to provide doctors training and information to empower physicians to work individually or help connect with like-minded colleagues, on issues of importance to you.
Learn more in a one-hour virtual forum that will be hosted by the Columbus Medical Association, featuring CMA President Beth Liston, MD, who is also a current member of the Ohio House of Representatives.
