{Happy National PA Day} Mr. Loerke

Wednesday, October 06, 2010


Forty-three years ago today the first class of Physician Assistant's graduated from Duke University. Now there are over 160 different PA programs and 75,000 clinically active PA's worldwide.

This PA likes to: shimmy across the hardwoods in his Smartwools, remove stitches from wiggly babies, play with magnifying glasses, suture lacerations, cook in his conductors hat, cast broken bones, write love letters, perform lumbar punctures, take naps, go on backpacking trips, and can eat his weight in Blue Bell & Magic Shell.

So hug every PA you know today. Hug 'em like you mean it.

Em, I'll trust you to pass along a hug to the Mister since he's the only PA I know. By the way, fun to see you all returning from your Tuesday evening walk yesterday. (I wonder how many of your adoring fans are jealous that we're neighbors . . .) Hope it was a good walk. :-)

Thanks, everyone! President Obama signed a proclamation today that establishes October 6-12th as National PA Week! The advocacy continues on, thanks to the 3 pioneers from 1967.
