Our state advocacy is focused on making sure your state’s laws and regulations allow you to provide the highest level of care to your patients.
We advocate for PA-positive laws and regulations in every state. This includes working with PA state and specialty associations on laws and regulations that affect PA practice.
We also work with stakeholders on policies that support full PA practice. Some of our partners include the Federation of State Medical Boards, National Governors Association and state advocacy staff at national physician and advocacy organizations.
Learn about your state’s laws below and what you can do to help improve PA practice.
