With members’ safety and attention to their patients top priorities of the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians (OAFP) during this unprecedented time, August’s Family Medicine Celebration has been cancelled.
In its place, an Annual Membership Meeting will be held virtually on Sunday, August 9, at 7 p.m.
The OAFP leadership and staff share in members’ disappointment in missing this annual source of dynamic continuing medical education programming and networking with colleagues. However, we remain confident this is the right decision for family physicians, their practices, and their families.
Per OAFP Bylaws, an annual meeting must be held for the membership to make necessary governance and business decisions. An email will be sent to members in the coming weeks with information on how to participate in this year’s virtual Annual Membership Meeting. In the meantime, please plan on participating from 7-9 p.m. on Sunday, August 9.
The OAFP Board of Directors and staff greatly appreciate the service and sacrifice of all who continue to display profound courage during the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to bringing the family of family medicine together again in 2021!
If you have questions about the 2020 Annual Membership Meeting, please contact Director of Education Erin Jech or call 800.742.7327.
