Equipping Certified PAs  
to Improve Health

PA SPOTLIGHT

Bridging the Healthcare Gap through Service

Certified PA Lindsay Spencer wanted to do more than just deliver healthcare as a profession. She wanted to use her PA knowledge and skills to bring care to a community where a healthcare system didn’t exist. This summer she joined an interprofessional team of healthcare providers to deliver care and education to 678 people in the Tierra Blanca Mountain Range of rural Guatemala.

INITIATIVE SPOTLIGHT

Congratulations 2017 Kathy J. Pedersen Grantee

The nccPA Health Foundation Board selected the Marquette University PA Program as the recipient of this year’s Kathy J. Pedersen Grant to Promote Equitable Care. Their project seeks to improve health literacy at two urban, low-income clinics. The opportunity to reach community members as well as PA students about a modifiable barrier to high quality care suggests a model for the future.
