Ray Dale served as Executive Officer of the Physician Assistant Committee from 1980-2000, and was instrumental in the development and growth of CAPA as an organization representing our profession.

Ruth Webb served as program director for the Charles R. Drew University PA Program for several years, and was actively involved with numerous local, state, and national professional organizations.

She served as Vice Chair of the Board on Medical Quality Assurance, member of the Physician Assistant Examining Committee, member of the California Council Of PA and NP programs, and founding member of the LA County Joint Practice Advisory Council on NPs and PAs. Known for “keeping it real,” she would do whatever it took to help students achieve the goal of becoming PAs.
