In honor of National PA Week, we’d like to recognize our physician assistants for the amazing work they do at Fenway. Our PAs not only provide the highest quality care to our patients, but also bring much needed leadership to our programs and great teamwork to our medical floors.
Physician assistants have been providing clinical care to patients for over 40 years in the United States. There are over 100,000 PAs practicing nationally today. Our wonderful Fenway Health PAs are: Shekitta Acker, Jill Frushtick, Marieke Goldman-Silva, and Julie Thompson.
This week is also an opportunity to raise awareness and visibility of the profession. Before it was a weeklong event, National PA Day was first celebrated on October 6, 1987, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the first graduating class of PAs from the Duke University PA program. October 6 is also the birthday of the profession’s founder, Eugene A. Stead, Jr., MD.
Please join us in thanking our dedicated PAs and wishing them a wonderful National PA Week.
