General registration is now closed. We are currently at capacity. For additional information about LAS, please contact Penny Gaillard. Thank you.
The PA profession is poised for major advances in 2017 - but we need your help. There are big decisions and issues facing the profession. What should our recertification process be? What should PA practice authority look like? How might the recent Supreme Court decision, North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners v. Federal Trade Commission, impact PA regulation?
From new payment models to changing demographics to patient demands for transparency and accountability, the healthcare environment is changing rapidly. An environment of change and experimentation is creating a significant opportunity for us to take the next decisive steps toward the future we envision for the profession. Bringing together the perspectives and voices of PAs from all over the country and different specialties and settings is the next step toward making our vision a reality.
This is where you come in. Our goal is to have voices from all PAs, PA students and CO representatives at the 2017 Leadership and Advocacy Summit, March 4-5 in Arlington, Va.
With a new administration and a new Congress taking office, we have elected to focus the 2017 LAS on state and specialty practice rather than federal advocacy, so we will not have a designated Capitol Hill day. An abbreviated weekend schedule should make it easier for even more PAs and PA students to participate.
The program will include presentations and discussions on four issues of particular importance:
LAS will also offer engaging CME, state advocacy skill-building and reimbursement sessions, and much more. See the preliminary program for the full schedule.
Reserve your seat at this special event registering now, and please forward this invitation to others who may be interested. Please contact email@example.com if we can answer any questions or provide guidance as you prepare for this event.
Join us as we shape the future of the profession. We look forward to seeing you there.
