My name is Michael Fusco and I am currently in my first year of PA school at Hofstra University.  I am the current SAAPA Vice President of the class of 2019, and so far I have helped organize multiple community service events for my class, such as food drives to donate to the less fortunate, fundraisers for charities such as Cycle for Survival (for rare cancers), Chron's & Colitis Foundation, and the Alzheimers Foundation.  My short term goal is to successfully graduate with my MS in Physician Assistant Studies and pass the PANCE.  My long term goal is to work in administration to help progress the PA profession alongside the ever changing healthcare field. 
It is an honor to be in the running for student director for NYSSPA.  I believe I am qualified for this position with my background of various leadership and teamwork experiences, which are two essential skills required for this position.  If elected as student director for NYSSPA, I will help to bridge the gap between other PA programs in NY by organizing state-wide events for students to attend and network.  One key event that I feel is essential for students to attend is the NYSSPA conference, to both interact with other students and to be up to date on PA legislature in NY.  I would focus on promoting this event to the PA programs of NY to encourage attendance of all.  If elected I would also try and involve students more in NYSSPA by sending out surveys to the PA programs in NY to see if they have any ideas or changes that they would like to see for PA's practicing in NY.  With your vote, I can help promote the PA profession in NY and engage more students in NYSSPA.
