Date: Tuesday, February 10th
Time: 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Capitol Building Annex
On Tuesday, February 10th, KAPA invites you to converge on the Kentucky State Capitol to advocate for your profession, and to specifically lobby to change Kentucky statute to increase the number of PAs that a physician may supervise in the Commonwealth from two (2) to four (4). Affecting this change will help assure the most effective use of PAs within each Kentucky practice, and it will help to ensure that more PAs can be deployed (and employed) efficiently in Kentucky! The Kentucky Medical Association (KMA) has agreed to support this change and we are pleased to be able to carry their endorsement into the 2015 legislative session.
Kentucky is among only eight states to limit physician discretion and supervision oversight to this degree.

Every member matters—we need you to attend KAPA Lobby Day! In addition to advocating for this much-needed increase in the number of PAs that Kentucky physicians may supervise, you will also be able to raise awareness about the importance of PAs to our patients and to the healthcare system.
We will help you prePAre! Upon your arrival in Frankfort, we will hold a prep session to go over talking points and answer any questions that you may have. You will also receive collateral materials, including a one-page summary to share with each legislator that you visit. We will also hold an optional webinar in January to go over tips to ensure a successful KAPA Lobby Day.
