Give Back to the PA Community in New Orleans this May

March 30, 2018

Party for a Purpose and Pacers for Health promo picturesThe PA Foundation invites you to attend its special events at AAPA 2018, Party for a Purpose at B.B. King’s Blues Club and Pacers for Health 5K Fun Run/Walk! These activities provide a perfect opportunity to network and catch up with friends and colleagues after participating in excellent professional offerings at the conference, like the 8-hour buprenorphine waiver training or the one-day obesity symposium. When you participate in PA Foundation events, you support the organization’s mission: empowering PAs to improve health through philanthropy and service.

Since 1977, the PA Foundation has worked to promote better health and to positively impact the lives of PAs, students, their patients, and the communities they serve. The PA Foundation awards scholarships for PA education, IMPACT Grants to encourage and support patient-focused, community-based health projects, and Global Outreach Grants to fund humanitarian activities that improve the quality of care in underserved areas of developing countries and the United States. In addition, just this year, the Foundation launched the inaugural Mental Health Outreach Fellowship to equip PAs and PA students to lead mental health outreach in their communities.

If you’re a PA who’s benefited from the PA Foundation’s programs, you know the importance of its work. Or maybe you’re passionate about empowering the next generation of PAs, or you’re dedicated to giving back to communities in need. Whatever your motivation – the PA Foundation offers you two opportunities during AAPA 2018 to support its mission and work, while having fun and interacting with your colleagues at the same time. Sign up today!
