Plan for PA Week

PA Week is coming up on October 6-12! Get ready to get engaged and show your pride in the PA profession. Read on to find out where to access PA Week resources and how to get involved in the PA Foundation’s PA Week activities.

Pay it Forward – Honor a Mentor, Colleague or Friend

The Foundation’s Pay it Forward campaign encourages you to embrace the spirit of PA Week by honoring a mentor, colleague or friend who has influenced your PA journey.

In the weeks leading up to PA Week, start thinking about who you want to recognize through the campaign. It could be:

  • A mentor
  • A colleague
  • A professor/faculty member
  • A friend who has supported you in your career
  • A family member

Beginning October 6, make a gift to the PA Foundation in honor of that special individual, and we’ll inform your honoree of your gift and encourage him or her to pay it forward by recognizing someone else. We’ll keep the chain of recognition going throughout PA Week as a tribute to PAs and their remarkable contributions to healthcare.

Tell Us About Your Honoree

We want to know who you’ve chosen to honor with a Pay it Forward gift and how this person has inspired or supported you. Submit a photo and brief description of your honoree and their role in your PA career or education, and we’ll feature them on our Facebook page during PA Week.
