From the President

Hello Fellow KY PA's,

Serving as president of KAPA is a great honor, one that I do not take lightly. As the fall months quickly approach, KAPA is focusing on the upcoming 2019 General Assembly in Frankfort. We are again gearing up to advance PA prescriptive authority legislation, as Kentucky is the only state in the nation that does not allow PAs to prescribe at least some level of scheduled medications. We need all KAPA members to stand behind and support this important legislation to further advance the PA profession in the Commonwealth.

KAPA also relies on its members and member volunteers to assist with various projects, from community outreach to public education and more. Whether you can serve as a KAPA board or committee member or volunteer for a few hours talking to PAs during PA week, your service to KAPA will have a lasting impact on the profession and the patients we serve. If you are a KAPA member interested in becoming more involved, look at the committees listed on the website and if interested, take time to fill out the online Member Volunteer Form.

In addition, as we are all representatives for KAPA, if you know of other PAs that are not currently members, please reach out to them and ask them to join our community. Benefits of KAPA membership include:

  • Access to the members‐only section of the KAPA website
  • Discounts on KAPA CME conference registration
  • Access to KAPA DisPAtch - the KAPA quarterly e‐Newsletter
  • Access to PArlez - the KAPA member listserv
  • Networking opportunities
  • Legislative representation
  • PA job board listings
  • Student support
  • Public education about the PA profession
  • Volunteer and leadership opportunities

ank you all again for your continued support and membership in KAPA!
