On May 20, 2019, Governor Mike DeWine issued Executive Order 2019-16D, creating the Governor’s Working Group on Reviewing of the Medical Board’s Handling of the Investigation Involving Richard Strauss. In their report to the governor, members recommended that the board should “reassure its constituents, despite the recent and ongoing revelations surrounding Strauss, that it seeks to strike a balance between investigation confidentiality and government transparency, in order to achieve internal accountability and to demonstrate its commitment to eradicating sexual impropriety by its licensees.” Governor's Working Group Report
This webpage is dedicated to supporting transparency as the board seeks to implement recommendations made by the working group and appropriate disclosure of case information to the public.
