If you attend just one advocacy event this year…

    Make sure it’s the Ohio ACEP Emergency Medicine Leadership Forum!

In addition to being Ohio ACEP’s Annual Membership Meeting, the Ohio ACEP Emergency Medicine Leadership Forum is THE advocacy event for Ohio emergency physicians.

If you’ve ever looked at the challenges facing emergency medicine and thought, “Somebody should do something,” join us for the EM Leadership Forum and let us show you how to be that “somebody.” At the Leadership Forum, you’ll meet with legislators, learn the art of effectively advocating for your specialty, and you’ll be empowered to make a positive difference!
 

Why Legislators Want to Hear from Emergency Physicians

No one is an expert on everything, even elected officials. That’s why lawmakers need information from people who are experts in their field—and what better expert than a physician to talk to a legislator about medical practice and health policy?

Physicians are leaders in their communities, and you might be surprised how often legislators will jump at the chance to ask your opinion or use you as a valued resource on healthcare issues. And if you’re a constituent, that also makes you a potential voter! In the world of advocacy, there is just no substitute for the words, “I am a resident of your district, and I think…”
 

“Morning Rounds & Coffee Grounds: What’s Brewing in Emergency Medicine”

If you could talk to lawmakers about emergency medicine, what would you say? Would you talk about EMTALA? Would you voice your concerns over Ohio’s medical malpractice climate? Or maybe you would discuss psychiatric boarding?

This is your chance! 

Ohio ACEP is bringing legislators from across the state together for Morning Rounds & Coffee Grounds, a unique opportunity to meet with lawmakers over coffee and share your perspective on emergency medicine.
 

Why Numbers Count—Let’s Fill the Statehouse With EM Physicians!

When emergency physicians turn out in huge numbers, legislators have little choice but to take note. It shows legislators your commitment to emergency medicine and, most importantly, that EM physicians are serious about advocating for the issues that affect your patients.
