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.

Friends!

You’re in for a HUGE treat next summer!  We’re so excited about our nationally attended 2019 Annual Summer CME Conference on luxurious Hilton Head Island, SC, July 15 – 19!

Why, you ask?

New Host Hotel!  With 600 attendees from 33 states, 150 students, and 50 exhibit booths, we outgrew our previous hotel on the island.  So, we’re thrilled to announce our brand new conference home:  the Hilton Head Marriott Resort & Spa.  The beautiful resort sits along 12 miles of pristine beaches with over 500 guest rooms.  Luxury amenities include three golf courses, a fitness center, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools, three restaurants, and much more.  Everything you and your family have dreamed of in a world-class vacation experience is waiting for you.

Afternoons Off!  That’s right, due to popular demand, we’re ending each day at 1 pm so you can relax with your friends and family on the beach.  All work and no play is no fun!

Crème de la crème presenters!  Our top-rated educators are 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.

“Deep-dive” tracks!  You asked for it, you got it!  Topics include Cardiology, Dermatology, Emergency Medicine, Orthopedics/Sports Medicine, Pediatrics & Women’s Health

Free 8 hour Board Review!  $399 value – Offered the day before the conference begins, our dynamite presenter will give you the confidence and knowledge you need to pass your certification or recertification exam.

More CME than ever!  Featuring 4 days of education + free board review + 8 optional workshops!

Voted Best Island!  For the third year in a row, Hilton Head was voted the best island in the continental U.S. by Travel + Leisure readers.

So, mark your calendars now and be prepared to combine your CME experience with the BEST family vacation EVER!

See you at the beach!

John Filson, PA-C, GAPA President
