This week Dr. Falcone sat down with Isi Green, Executive Director of CMA affiliate Physicians CareConnection (PCC).

Deployment of a Shared Alternative Care Site During the COVID-19 Pandemic | Journal of Emergency Medical Services (JEMS)
From the start, the Central Ohio Trauma System (COTS) was monitoring, planning, and preparing for COIVD-19.

This planning and preparation resulted in the transformation of the Greater Columbus Convention Center into an alternative care site for low risk COIVD-19+ patients, which was thankfully never needed but was an incredible example in partnership.

Read this latest publication from COTS and learn more about how 36 Ohio counties came together to make this a reality.
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.
This forum will provide basic background training on the public policy process and explore the next steps for participating physicians.
New to public policy? That is okay, as no previous experience with public policy or politics is required.
