Network & Learn Through the Interactive Exhibit Hall: Buckeye Health Plan, State Medical Board of Ohio, & WiscMed Spotlight!

Ohio AAP held our first-ever virtual Annual Meeting on November 20-21, 2020. Not only did we have virtual education sessions, we were able to partner with 32 exhibitors to bring  our members and attendees an interactive networking experience with our industry friends. We would like to highlight each exhibitor in this and forthcoming issues of Ohio AAP Today. We also encourage you visit our virtual exhibit hall to learn more about the products and services that are useful for your practice.
