BEING ELIMINATED


May 10, 2014

The AAPA has been working on
revising the current volunteer
committee structure
for the last 18
months.
In February of 2013, AAPA
leadership announced that all
volunteer committees would be
ending as of July, and being replaced
with a new structure. After receiving
advisement from the AAPA 2013
House of Delegates, the AAPA
revisited the decision and process,
and is working now to finalize
selection of a reduced number of
volunteer committees. With the He
alth
Disparities Work Group
elimination,
there will be new
opportunities to join
us in our work fighting health
disparities with the Physician
Assistants for Health Equity AAPA
Special Interest Group.
Contact us to
learn more about how you can join in
this effort to keep disparities work
central to the academy's work.

2014 brings a continuing initiative from
the AAPA Health Disparities Work
Group, the National Library of
Medicine, AAPA Special Interest Group
Physician Assistants for Health Equity,
and the Washington Academy of
Physician Assistants. The effort
focuses on creating a tool for PAs and
other providers promoting awareness
of clinician bias and stereotyping. The
project also highlights related data
indicating that increased awareness
can decrease the activation of the
biases that result in unequal
treatment.
