PLATFORM
As a candidate for House of Delegates, I would like to bring my wide ranging professional experience and education to the table. Not only am I an accomplished PA, but have a specialized knowledge in how Physician Assistants (PAs) mold into the current health care system and politics. My major motivations would be to ensure all PAs can practice within their means, and can work as well-respected healthcare professionals in all types of practices. PAs can range from working with one single provider to working with large healthcare conglomerates. This can bring disparities, as no PA is practicing the same way, but all PAs should have the rights and protections to work as equals to each other.  This also shows that no PA receives the same CME opportunities, time protection for administrative purposes and education, and growth opportunities within their practices. I would like to support all PAs in the country and state, by creating visible and transparent initiatives that allow PAs to feel protected, understood, and ultimately flourish in their own independent professions.  I would like to enhace how PAs can have access to NYSSPA and AAPA, and the support and knowledge that can received from these professional organizations.
