OSMA Political Action Committee
The Ohio State Medical Association Political Action Committee (OSMAPAC) 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.
The OSMAPAC is governed by a board of directors
, with representatives from each OSMAPAC District, as well as from each of the following sections: OSMA Alliance, International Medical Graduate, Residents and Students.
Each year at the OSMA Annual Meeting
, the OSMAPAC recognizes the largest contributor to the OSMAPAC with the Donor of the Year Award
. This year's recipient was Louis Ralofsky, MD.
