National PA Week, which takes place annually from October 6th through the 12th, aims to not only celebrate Physician Assistants, but to also educate the public on the value PAs add to our nation’s health.
Here are three ways to celebrate the profession, while also raising awareness.
Raise awareness for PAs by using the hashtag #PAWeek on social media while you celebrate your profession and peers. One idea is to share the AAPA produced “Your PA Can Handle It” video with your network. Or give the public an idea of all being a PA entails by doing a day-in-the-life series of posts.
Advocate for PAs on Capitol Hill by joining the only federal healthcare Political Action Committee (PA PAC) dedicated to advancing the profession. To learn more about or to join the PA PAC, please click here.
A great way to create a tangible difference for PAs nationwide is to make a small monetary donation to programs that empower PAs to improve patient care in the communities they serve. Donate during PA Week to the PA Foundation by clicking here.
No matter how you celebrate this PA Week, know that all of us at HealthJobsNationwide.com are celebrating with you and we are so thankful for all you do to improve the health of our nation, not only this week, but throughout the year.
