Our 2nd Annual Pathologists’ Assistant Day, April 14, 2015, is quickly approaching! Our designated day offers each of you a great way to promote yourselves and our profession within each of your workplaces. Furthermore, this is a chance to celebrate the important impact our hard work and professional skills have on quality patient care at healthcare institutions throughout the country.
Moving forward we encourage you to advertise Pathologists’ Assistant Day by spreading the word to your collaborating pathologists, supervisors, and hospital administration. The AAPA will offer multiple options to do this, including banners, paper tents, and additional merchandise, specific for PA Day, which can be found on the AAPA website. As we approach PA Day, please check the AAPA website often for updates and links to these various forms of advertisement.
In addition, we’d also like to receive feedback on how you were celebrated. We would want to encourage you to send pictures, stories, or a short statement regarding how it was facilitated, and what was done at your institution to celebrate the profession. Finally, we will randomly choose a couple of submissions to be featured in an upcoming issue of our quarterly publication, The Cutting Edge. We will follow up with more information in the weeks ahead via the AAPA website and email blasts.
Best wishes in the New Year, and thank you for all that you do!
