President's Message (August)
Watch the latest installment of the President’s Message and learn of just some of the exiting events and initiatives coming up at the CMA. From the PAC Fundraiser to the PCC 5K Fun Run to the Move the Needle Challenge, there’s a lot going on so lets dive in!
CMA PAC has only one fundraising event every year. Your contributions at this event are used to make donations to Central Ohio office holders and candidates that local doctors decide are supportive of the work and perspectives of the CMA, COTS, and PCC.
This year’s guest speaker is a new member of the Central Ohio legislative delegation, Representative Allison Russo, who is completing her first term representing Upper Arlington and other parts of Franklin County in the 24th Ohio House District. Donate here.

Move the Needle Challenge
Getting a flu shot every year is incredibly important and if you don’t it can have dangerous consequences for not only you but the community. So, the CMA is challenging practices, physicians, and the general public to “Move the Needle” and increase the number of those vaccinated from the flu this year.
The Move the Needle Challenge is a MOC Part IV Quality Improvement project aimed at increasing the vaccination rate for the flu this season. Any practice or physician can participate, whether you administer the flu shot or not. Next week, we’ll officially launch this campaign and you’ll be able to request posters to hang in your practice among other resources for you and your patients. .
