GAPA Prescribes Personal Attention for Patients

More than 4,000 Georgia physician assistants are dedicated to ensuring patients across our state receive the personal attention they need from their medical care providers. As part of physician-directed teams, PAs offer increased patient accommodation. They make healthcare more accessible and take time to answer patients’ questions and educate them on health issues. Since 1975, the Georgia Association of Physician Assistants has been dedicated to ensuring the professional achievement of Georgia’s PAs by providing active representation, continuing medical education and opportunities for personal growth.

If GAPA’s 2017 conference was listed on the New York Stock Exchange, our stock would have skyrocketed. Why? Because the satisfaction of our conference attendees has reached an all-time-high! The positive changes to our conferences, implemented last year, resulted in the following stats:

98% = conference met my goals/expectations
95% = presentations will help me in my practice
96% = variety of presentations were satisfactory

For our 2018 nationally attended event, you’re in for another HUGE treat. Here’s why:

Education. Our attendees LOVE our new format of “dive-deep tracks” — we’ll be continuing this winning approach. Our presenters are the crème de la crème — truly the best in their respective fields. We asked them for their full-throttle creativity, and trust me, they’ve risen to the challenge. We promise you’ll be engaged and entertained at the same time. And, of course our hands-on workshops sell out each year, so be sure to secure your spot early.

Destination. One of the country’s most premier summer beach destinations, the world-class Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort can’t be beat. I don’t know if it’s the seven miles of sugar-white sand beach, four championship golf courses, 15 world-class tennis courts, 19 swimming pools, a 113-slip marina, water sports, or fishing. Or, it could be the children’s programs, spas, shopping, and casual and fine dining restaurants. Whatever the reason, your peers and colleagues from all 50 states are flocking to this amazing Gulf of Mexico destination. As for me, I love it all!.

Relaxation. Rejuvenation. Recreation. Most of us work too many hours, are too stressed out, don’t have enough time for family, and don’t have enough chill time. Sound familiar? I challenge you to sign up right now (you’ll get the best price). Book your hotel and get the best room. Let’s laugh together during our keynote speaker. Let’s enjoy the finest CME available anywhere. Let’s chill on the beach with our family and friends.

What’s more, whether you’re a first time conference attendee or you’re “coming home” like hundreds who join us year after year, you’ll be treated like family. Hear that? The beach is calling...
