  1. Hi! Sorry for the delayed response. I spoke with Dr. Bob Hadley, admissions chair for the PA program, who said another information another information session should take place on a Saturday sometime in the fall. You can watch the JCHS PA Program Facebook page or the JCHS website under news and events for more information or inquire at admissions@jchs.edu. You can also email him with any specific questions, or request to come by and speak one one-on-one. His email is RDHadley@jchs.edu. Although the latter is not the most time efficient, he would be happy to speak with you one-on-one within schedule constraints.
