When All Else Fails, Pitch a Tent
It's Preparedness Month and we're going focus on just some of the ways CMA program COTS prepares Ohio for any disaster.

Stayin' Alive: CPR/AED Training at the Columbus Medical Association

Exercise can make your body feel younger ... and (maybe) actually make it younger?

Check out Dr. Kenny Grewal's blog on exercise and how that can aid in healthy ageing.
Can Ohio Physicians Stand United?
The CMA says yes! The "Move the Needle Challenge" is a simple way physicians across Ohio can stand together around one issue: flu vaccination. Also, it's an easy way to earn a MOC Part IV credit through the CMA.
