Dear Arizona State Association of PAs,
AAPA and the African Heritage PA Caucus will be hosting two webinar listening sessions for all PAs to listen to and learn from Black PAs and PAs of color, including students, about how racism has impacted and continues to impact their lives and the lives of their patients. Creating shared understanding of these perspectives and experiences, as well as identifying potential solutions, will propel AAPA’s collaborative work to enhance diversity within the PA profession and promote equity and justice in healthcare.
This message is going out to all 118 constituent organizations (COs). COs are getting priority access to register for the Listening Sessions before this opens up to general membership tomorrow.
To ensure as many people as possible can participate, the first session will be held on Wednesday, June 24 from 8 to 9:30 p.m. EDT, repeating with a second session on Friday, June 26 from 12 to 1:30 p.m. EDT. The Zoom webinars will be able to accommodate up to 5,000 attendees per session.
Susan Salahshor, PhD, PA-C, DFAAPA will facilitate both sessions. Read more about her leadership, professional accomplishments, and commitment to the PA profession.
Please register here: https://www.aapa.org/news-central/listening-sessions/ today and share with your networks before we push this out on AAPA’s social channels on Thursday. We encourage you to register early so you secure a spot.
We hope to have you on the call next week.
