Celebrate PA Week

Celebrate PA Week

Thursday, October 12, 2017

Gothenburg Health is so thankful for our two PAs, Aaron Salomon and Natalie Waskowiak. Aaron and Natalie do an exceptional job of providing high-quality patient care to our community.

What is #PAweek?
Each year from October 6-12, we celebrate National PA Week, which recognizes the PA profession and its contributions to the nation’s health.

This week is also an opportunity to raise awareness and visibility of the profession. Before it was a weeklong event, National PA Day was first celebrated on October 6, 1987, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the first graduating class of PAs from the Duke University PA program. October 6 is also the birthday of the profession’s founder, Eugene A. Stead, Jr., MD. Now the profession is 50 years strong!
