AAPA COMMITTEE STRUCTURE REVISED:
NEW OPPRORTUNITIES FOR PAS FOR
HEALTH EQUITY TO SUPPORT ACADEMY
FOCUS ON HEALTH DISPARITIES

November 2014

The AAPA has revised the current
volunteer committee structure,  including
elimination of the AAPA Health Disparities
Work Group as well as other committees.
There is a new structure in place, with
some
new committees. (Scroll to the
bottom to see the new committees, and
click on the links to see the members.)
While health disparities no longer has a
dedicated work group committee, the
issue remains a high priority for the
academy. 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.

EQUITY AND THE WASHINGTON
ACADEMY OF PHYSICIAN ASSISTANTS



















Fall 2014 brings a continuing initiative
from the AAPA Physician Assistants for
Health Equity Special Interest Group, the
National Library of Medicine, 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.
