The OSMAPAC, the Ohio State Medical Association Political Action Committee, fights for Ohio physicians by helping to elect state and federal candidates who support the OSMA’s policy agenda. By electing legislators who will reduce the cumbersome regulations that inhibit the practice of medicine, OSMA lobbyists are equipped with the political muscle to enact meaningful reforms for the health care industry.
Gov. John Kasich meets with OSMA member Anthony Armstrong, MD.
(L to R) OSMA Founders' Club members Lisa Egbert, MD; Jeff Studebaker, MD; Charles Hickey, MD; Carl Foster, MD; Evangeline Andarsio, MD; Richard Cain, MD; Gale Hazen, MD; Jeff Boulter, MD; Marvin Rorick III, MD; Deepak Kumar, MD
