Academy Reception Provides Food, Fun & Film
Not that Academy!
More than 60 DOs, osteopathic medical students, and their guests attended the annual Columbus Osteopathic Association (also called the Academy) Member Reception, held February 25, 2009, at the Arena Grand Movie Theatre in downtown Columbus. The crowd enjoyed an evening of socializing with Central Ohio's osteopathic family, delicious hors d'oeuvres, beverages, and Oscar-winning movies!
The Theatre lobby provided a unique setting for the casual social hour (or rather hour-and-a-half since the event was from 6:00 to 7:30 pm). There was no formal agenda, but COA Past President Geri Urse, DO, welcomed attendees and thanked exhibitors Astellas Pharma US, The Premium Group, and Novo Nordisk. Afterwards, those who were so inclined stayed to take in a film of their choosing. All attendees received movie passes to use that evening or at a later date.
Technical difficulties resulted in cancellation of movie trivia. However, thanks still goes to COA Council Member Andy Eilerman, DO, for planning the "Scene It" activity. Since the prize wasn't awarded (a package of movie passes, movie-size candies, and Target giftcard), we're giving it away at the Annual Meeting in April.
