District 14 Recap - October 30, 2019

District 14 November 2019 Event

Laughter, learning, mentorship and camaraderie were on full display at the District 14 Networking event in Rocco’s on the Brick. Over 20 POMA members gathered for collegiality and updates from their professional association.  The group was treated to a product theater presentation on a new therapy to treat diabetic nephropathy.

Pamela Goldman, DO, POMA president, and Jason Leeper, POMA Program Manager/Districts led a discussion around numerous POMA topics. Physicians shared stories regarding scope of practice and how SB 25 and House Bill 100 will affect their practice and their profession.  The physicians also discussed the happenings at the recent meeting of the State Board of Osteopathic Medicine and the single accreditation system that begins in 2020.  Dr. Goldman and Richard Purse, District Co-chair and Trustee will take information back to inform the POMA leadership as a whole.

The district leadership is starting to organize upcoming events that will be sponsored by POMA. They are organizing an upcoming business meeting that will INCLUDE CME CREDIT. Residents and physicians are beginning to volunteer to lecture on coding, rheumatology, and radiology. More information will be available soon.  If you are interested in presenting at a district meeting, please contact Jason Leeper at [email protected].

District leadership is also pursuing ideas for district social events. The events are designed to include family members in a fun atmosphere. Last year, District 14 organized an event with the Trenton Thunder. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, please contact district leadership or the POMA offices.
