District 3 Recap - December 5, 2019

Holiday season was in the air in downtown Allentown on Thursday December 5th, as several members of District 3 gathered at the Allentown Brew Works. Scott Naftulin, DO, POMA District 3 member spoke to the group about various regenerative medicine treatments. Dr. Naftulin discussed the benefits, costs, and treatment differences between platelet-rich plasma, stem cell treatments and steroid treatments. The group discussed the various studies and evidence. The attendees received CME credit for attending.

Following the educational portion of the night, Rehab Tabchi, DO, District Chair, and Jason Leeper, Program Manager, from POMA updated the group on legislative and organizational topics. Members were engaged and gave feedback on the various news and regulations that came out the recent legislative session. That information will be shared to the POMA leadership.

District leadership is organizing another CME dinner event for late February/early March 2020. Please be on the lookout for more information. If you have a location or topic you want to learn about, please contact Dr. Tabchi or the POMA offices.
