Partners for Health Improvement

Improving health is everyone’s business. That’s why the PA Foundation partners with the private sector through our Partners for Health Improvement, a special program for companies who want to ensure that all people have access to quality care and who understand the role PAs play in strengthening the healthcare system.

The PA Foundation creates and supports PA-led initiatives that improve population health through patient-centered prevention, care and disease management projects in communities across the U.S. and around the world.

PAs are healthcare providers who are nationally certified and state licensed to practice medicine and prescribe medication in all medical and surgical specialties and care settings. Partners for Health Improvement invest in the mission of the PA Foundation: empowering PAs to improve health through philanthropy and service.

Through participation in Partners for Health Improvement you demonstrate your commitment to supporting the following PA Foundation goals:

  • Expanding opportunities for PAs to give back
  • Supporting PA efforts to engage patients in their own healthcare by providing educational resources

Our Vision & Mission
