Spring President's Message

Well it is the beginning of a new year. It is wonderful to be done with the cold and snow and welcome in the warmth and the green.

OHSSAMT held its spring educational seminar on April 13, 2019 in Chillicothe, Ohio. We had some wonderful speakers from the University of Cincinnati. One of those speakers, Kimberly Munson RMA, RPT (AMT) has been asked to present a session at the 2019 national convention this summer in Chicago, IL at the Chicago Hilton hotel from July1-5, 2019. We are so excited for her!

Come join us for our 2019 fall educational seminar at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio on September 28, 2019. Your board has been working very hard to provide a wide variety of topics and speakers for the educational seminars. Please take advantage of our seminars.

Just a reminder that everyone needs to record their CEs on AMTRAX at the national website www.americanmedtech.org. You can also find the new CCP guidelines there.

As of March 5, 2019 AMT, will be charging members $5 to send renewal cards by mail. Go to your “My Homepage” at the national website and print a free copy.

AMT offers several REACH Certificate Programs, which are online training curriculum focused on a specialty area or specific skillset. After completion you receive a certificate. Explore the available programs: ECG Certificate; Point-of-Care Testing Certificate; and Immunization Certification. AMT has a new certification: Molecular Diagnostics Technologist (MDT) Certification.

OHSSAMT is trying to go paperless with the state journal. Please notify the editor at OHSSAMT@gmail.com with any address or email changes. We are still looking for articles for the journal. The articles do not need to be long but do need to be pertinent and relevant for the medical disciplines. Article need to be in APA format and in your own words with cites.

We have a new Legislative Chairperson. Her name is Jessica Turner. She has reported that the Ohio Senate is considering banning smoking in cars with young people in them. The Ohio Senate is considering co-pays, premiums for Medicaid expansion group. Also, Ohio lawmakers begin a new push for drug price transparency legislation.

Once again it is time to think about state awards. If you know of an individual or you think you might qualify for one of the OHSSAMT awards, please contact me at OHSSAMT@gmail.com. Some of the state awards are RMA of the Year; RPT of the Year; RDA of the Year; MT/MLT of the Year; and AHI of the Year. We have decided it would be a great idea to highlight our members on our state website. What a great way for your peers to see you shine!

The board getting out to talk with schools and employers about AMT. If you have a school or employers that would like to learn about us, please contact us at OHSSAMT@gmail.com. We will get in touch with them.

Finally, I would like to express OHSSAMT’s deepest sympathy to one of our member’s family. On March 31, 2019 one of our Lifetime members, Daniel V. Liska passed away. Daniel served on the OHSSAMT board of directors for many years as the state treasurer. He loved attending the state seminars and the national conventions. He made us laugh and we will miss him very much.

Sincerely Sheryl Scott RMA (AMT)
