A Tipp City physician is the new president of the Ohio Osteopathic Association.
Dr. Jennifer J. Hauler, a family and emergency physician, is vice president and chief medical officer for Premier Health.
She is also a paramedic instructor and medical director of the Troy and Vandalia fire departments, the Ohio Osteopathic Association said in a statement.
In addition to her DO degree from Ohio University, she earned an MBA from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University. She had been on the association’s board of trustees since 2009 and was president of the Dayton District Academy of Osteopathic Medicine
The Ohio Osteopathic Association represents more the 4,700 osteopathic physicians and lobbies on different state government issues affecting its members.
Osteopathic physicians represent 16 percent of Ohio physicians and 28 percent of the family physicians in the state.
Both state physician lobbying groups now have presidents from the Dayton area.
Ohio State Medical Association, which represents doctors, in April named Dr. Evangeline Andarsio, a professor at Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine, as the new president.
