Eight local physicians founded the Toledo Medical Association in 1851. The Lucas County Medical Society was formed in 1894. The two organizations merged in 1902 to form The Academy of Medicine of Toledo and Lucas County.
Today our mission continues:
- To provide service to physicians by preserving unity in the profession and supporting professionalism and the independence of medical judgment;
- To respond to the medical needs and concerns of the community;
- To provide accurate and current medical information to the public.
In these ways, The Academy of Medicine is actively engaged in the support and enhancement of medical care in Toledo and Lucas County.
