Ohio ACEP EM Assembly Recap

On March 20, 2019, Ohio ACEP held its annual member meeting, the Ohio ACEP EM Assembly. More than 60 emergency physicians gathered in Columbus for an awesome day of interactive educational workshops, conversations with state legislators, the Ohio ACEP Annual Awards presentation, Chapter elections, and more.


Morning Rounds & Coffee Grounds

The Ohio ACEP EM Assembly kicked off with “Morning Rounds & Coffee Grounds,” an awesome opportunity for Ohio EM physicians to talk with state legislators over breakfast about some of the most important issues facing emergency physicians and patients. Nearly 50 state legislators and staffers joined us for breakfast in the Statehouse Atrium!
