Dear Rhode Island PA's,
I hope you will join us for our first RIAPA Virtual Roundtable. If you are a practicing PA, you have had to face questions from patients, laypeople, and other medical providers regarding our professional title. Over the last 20 years, our profession has debated the possibility and logistical implications of a professional title change. In 2019, AAPA hired a marketing firm to investigate this important issue. The firm conducted a years-long study to produce evidence-based guidance on the topic for our professional organizations to formally review and debate at the AAPA HOD Meeting in May 2021. RIAPA wants to ensure its members are well-informed about these discussions and that your voice is heard.
Please join your RIAPA Representatives to the AAPA House of Delegates and some other board members to discuss the AAPA title change and other important issues on February 26th from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
