National Physician Assistant Week is celebrated every year from October 6-12. Treating patients in today’s complex health care settings takes a whole team of professionals. Among these medical workers are physician assistants, broadly trained in a wide spectrum of conditions and tasks. Their education focuses on patient education, preventive care, and chronic care management. They can help patients improve their quality of life and manage chronic conditions. Physician Assistants are unsung heroes and deserve their moment in the limelight, so this week is to celebrate them and be thankful for their efforts. This #PAweek, let's honor all PAs do for their patients and their communities and all the ways they add value to healthcare!
