President's Welcome

Hello from Columbus.  Although our progress has been slow I think we are moving forward and hopefully establishing OHSAM as an important organization recognizing medical providers that are dedicated to improving the lives of our patient's with substance abuse problems.  This web page is the first accomplishment and I think it will really allow us to get to know each other better and to grow stronger as an organization.
