Morning Rounds & Coffee Grounds


If you had the chance to talk to lawmakers about emergency medicine, what would you say?

Would you talk about the opioid crisis? 

Would you discuss psychiatric boarding?

Or maybe you would speak up for liability reform? 

Here's your chance!

Join us at the Ohio Statehouse on February 28, 2018 as we bring legislators and emergency physicians from across the state together for Morning Rounds & Coffee Grounds, a unique opportunity to meet with lawmakers over coffee and share your perspective on medicine and emergency care.
