America Needs PAs

This year, AAPA declared the theme for PA Week as "America Needs PAs." This is a perfect theme as Kentucky is one of the first states to roll out the Affordable Care Act. America and Kentucky will need PAs more than ever.

This is being recognized more and more. See below:

  • DeShana Collet, PA-C, PhD and Dr. John Richards were interviewed for PA week by WKYT. This is scheduled to air Monday on the 5:30 p.m. news.
  • PA Week was celebrated on the Today show.
  • Rep. Karen Bass PA-C recognized PA Week before the House of Representatives.
  • WYKT is also planning on doing an interview soon with Dr. Naren James about rural health care and the use of PAs in rural Kentucky. Watch our website for updates.

As KAPA responds to the increasing need of PAs in Kentucky remember we need you! Follow our website for news about upcoming events so you can get involved. Also, encourage other PAs you know to join KAPA.
