If you have not already contacted your state representative about your opposition to House Bill 216, the proposal to give APRNs independent practice here in Ohio, malady please do so now.
The Ohio Academy of Family Physicians is joining forces with the Ohio State Medical Association (OSMA) in making it very easy for you to send an email to your legislators on this issue. You do not have to be an OSMA member to use the system. Send an email to your member of the Ohio House of Representatives and urge them to oppose this legislation today!
