A Pivotal Moment for the PA Profession
The healthcare marketplace has undergone significant change in the last two years. Yet, as valued members of patient-centered, team-based care, PAs continue to strengthen the core of our healthcare system. To elevate the PA profession and demonstrate who PAs are, what PAs do, and the value PAs bring to patients, AAPA needs leaders who are strategic, innovative, and passionate about both the profession and the patients we serve.
AAPA is excited to introduce you to the PAs and PA students who have stepped forward to lead during these challenging times. Click the links below to view your 2022 Elections candidates:
