Every year from October 6-12, we celebrate National PA Week, which recognizes the PA profession and its contributions to the nation’s health.
This year's theme is PAs Are Essential.
During the COVID-19 response, PAs have stepped up like never before. They've shown how flexible, adaptable, and collaborative they can be:
- Testing, diagnosing, and treating COVID-19 patients
- Conducting telemedicine visits
- Redeploying to different specialties
- Or continuing to provide healthcare for those who need it most
As you all know, we are founded by Lara Francisco, PA-C, so this is very near and dear to our hearts. We will be showcasing some of our esteemed PA Ambassadors this week, and encourage everyone to support each day tuning in to our social media features, blog interviews, and special giveaways.
