Get to Know Communities at the CMA

Culinary Medicine

“You will have terrible days while you’re in training and when you’re working. You have a front seat in the theater of human drama. [Hobbies] will help you remember that you are a multifaceted person, that you are not your job.”

-  Maria Yang, MD

At the Columbus Medical Association, we know how important it is for physicians to cultivate hobbies and community outside of work. So, as an additional benefit of CMA membership, we have various community groups available for our physicians to join. This week we are focusing on our Culinary Medicine community that aims to develop and provide nourishment for the body and the soul.


In this group, physicians cook together, share recipes, patient nutrition information materials, nutrition research, learn about gardening, and so much more. See below to learn more or click the button below to join today!

If you want to get even more involved, consider joining the Culinary Medicine Community Committee. Email Lynn to learn more.

Steps to Efficient, Effective, and Reimbursed Medicare Wellness Visits

Medicare wellness visits provide important opportunities to identify illness and plan for preventive services, such as vaccinations and screenings for illnesses like cancer or diabetes. There are three types of visits available for people with Medicare: the initial preventive physical exam (IPPE), initial annual wellness visit (AWV), and subsequent AWVs.

It’s important to understand the differences among these visits because billing the wrong visit at the wrong time can result in denied claims. Download this flyer to learn...
