Trine celebrates National PA Week

October 17, 2018

FORT WAYNE — Students in Trine University’s new Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS) program celebrated National PA Week with service and community-building events.

The students began by participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Oct. 6 at Parkview Field. Trine MPAS students raised $570 for the walk.

On Oct. 8, the students served dinner at Mad Anthony’s Children’s Hope House. Other activities included a scavenger hunt for students to get to know the resources they have available, pet therapy, and a relay race.

National PA Week is celebrated each year from Oct. 6-12 by the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA), a professional society representing more than 123,000 physician assistants. The week is an opportunity to raise awareness and visibility of the profession.

It originally began as National PA Day on Oct. 6, 1987, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the first graduating class of PAs from the Duke University PA program.
