VACCINE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Volunteers with various medical licenses who are actively practicing or are retired with an active license are highly encouraged to support response efforts to the COVID-19 vaccination program by signing up for the Mahoning County Medical Reserve Corps. Nonmedical adult volunteers are needed to assist and can sign up also.

To join, visit www.ohio responds.odh.ohio.gov. Interested persons who live in a county that does not have an MRC unit may elect to register in a neighboring county.

Medical providers can enroll to participate in the COVID-19 Vaccination Program. Any facility licensed by the Ohio Board of Pharmacy to administer or provide vaccination services is eligible to enroll as a potential COVID-19 vaccine provider. More information can be found at https://odh.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/odh/know-our-programs/covid-19-vaccine-provider/ohio-covid-19-provider-enroll.ment

OAFP’S FAMILY PHYSICIAN OF THE YEAR: The Ohio Academy of Family Physicians is calling for nominations for one of its most prestigious awards, the 2021 Family Physician of the Year.

This award recognizes an Ohio family physician who has exhibited extraordinary, beyond-the-call-of-duty merit, and encourages OAFP members and medical students to pursue the ideals of family medicine, and convey these ideals to the public.

To be nominated for this award, the family physician must: have 10 years post-residency (or equivalent) experience; be a current member of the OAFP for a meaningful period of time; and be currently a practicing physician.

Nominations can be made by any current OAFP member, a regional chapter, a family medicine residency program, departments of family medicine, or a community individual. Nominations are due by March 5.

To nominate your physician, complete the online nomination form or send a letter of recommendation to: OAFP Awards Workgroup, Ohio Academy of Family Physicians, 4075 N. High St., Columbus, OH 43214-3296; fax: 614-267-9191 or email: lheberling@ohioafp.org.
