Before it was a week-long event, National PA Day was first celebrated on Oct. 6, 1987, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the first graduating class of PAs from our own Duke University PA program. Oct. 6 is also the birthday of the profession’s founder, Eugene A. Stead, Jr., MD. For more on the profession’s history, visit the PA History Society.
Thank you to all the NCMS PA members. Happy Physician Assistant Week!
