District VIII 32nd Annual Educational Winter Seminar - January 31 - February 3, 2019

Another successful winter seminar from District VIII is in the books. There were 281 attendees at this year's seminar which offered 20 Category 1A AOA CME credits, including 4 patient safety credits.  Additional 1A credits were also available by attending the Friday and Saturday afternoon workshops.

District VIII had a well-attended business meeting at this year's Winter Seminar. Elections were held, and you can see those results below. Members also discussed and agreed upon giving a scholarship to one medical student who has roots in District VIII from each PA osteopathic school; LECOM, LECOM Seton Hill, and PCOM. More details to come.

Additionally, POMA president, Joan Grzybowski, DO and POMA CEO, Diana Ewert, provided the group with updates on POMA’s continuing role in education and physician advocacy. POMA Executive Vice President, Andy Sandusky, was introduced and gave a legislative update. Lastly, Christopher Poggi, DO gave a PA osteopathic board update. Nominations for delegates to the POMA House of Delegates in May were taken. If you're interested in representing District VIII and serving as a delegate, please reach out to Dr. Battistella.
