Arkansas PAs Take Capital Hill
Arkansas Academy of PAs Legislative Committee member, Ms. Sara E. Vann, PA-C, along with Ms. Tracie Allen, PA-C, participated in PAs on the Hill, while attending the American Academy of PAs: Leadership and Advocacy Summit, this month in our nation’s Capitol. Along with other PAs from around the country, they met with members and staffers for our Senators and Representatives.
Ms. Vann and Ms. Allen were able to meet with staff for Senator John Boozman, Senator Tom Cotton, Representative Rick Crawford, and Representative Steve Womack. In these meetings, they were able to advocate for PAs and our patients by discussing the Access to Diabetic Shoes Act and the PA Direct Payment Act.
