Physician Assistant Week: Celebrating PAs Nationwide
October 15, 2012 — Physician Assistant Week, which occurs every year between October 6 and 12, is dedicated to celebrating the Physician Assistant (PA) profession across the country. Started by the American Academy of Physician Assistants, PA Week is a tradition that raises both understanding and awareness of the profession, and promotes healthy lifestyle choices for all. PA Week is observed this week throughout the nation; events range from local health fairs and blood drives to walk-a-thons and fitness tests. Many Physician Assistants and PA groups arrange networking meetings and community health events at this time of the year. This special edition of Chartings honors the dedicated leaders, expert faculty, accomplished alumni, and altruistic students who make up the oldest, largest Physician Assistant Program in the city of Philadelphia: ours! Please join the College in recognizing PA Week.
