UNTHSC Physician Assistant students participated in the Texas Academy of Physician Assistant Legislative Retreat and PA Day at the Texas Capitol in Austin earlier this month. Ten PA students participated in group dynamic training, communication and team building, and education on the current state legislative climate. The students also met with 13 Texas representatives and Texas state senators.
The meetings educated legislators on Physician Assistants and the Physician-PA teams as well as current legislative efforts that TAPA has put forward.
Student participants: Steven Sounders, Cory Bell, Jenifer Beltran, Anita Lazar, Jennifer Stuthard, Aleshia Franklin, Julie Lu, Susan Mims, Amanda Amini, Neha Mehta.
