If you have explored any part of CAPA’s History you will see many instances in which an external threat, whether it be a bill or another medical organization, almost decimated the PA profession as we know it. From barriers to PA employment to limitations on PAs’ scope of practice, being the “newest profession on the medical block” and the least understood, PAs have to fight constantly to protect their profession while trying to advance it at the same time.
It is certainly a challenge, but PAs are not doing this alone. Successful legislative advocacy is led by the CAPA Political Action Committee (CAPA PAC), a bipartisan organization led by and for PAs. CAPA PAC supports candidates for state office who share CAPA’ vision for PAs in healthcare, their patients, and the public health of all Californians.
Contribute to the future of PA Profession!
