Hi Florida PA Community.

Latest update on our PA Bill (Autonomy Bill).
This Bill is very comprehensive but in a nut shell, we are going for autonomy within primary care medical fields. This Bill will also clean up our PA statute/rule language as well.

This House Bill and Senate Bill should come out by this Friday with various sponsors (Representative and Senator) attached to it. FAPA will send an notice via email and social media when the Bills become public soon.

Starting next week, we will have Town Hall Meetings via Zoom with the Florida PA community including students. These Meetings will educate everyone on our Bill and how to meet with your local legislators via remote (Zoom, etc). Dates and times with these Meetings will come out soon.

Looking at our current FAPA Political Action Committee (PAC) balance, we are very low with our funding. We need everyone to make donations now so we can have a fighting chance in Tallahassee.
You don't have to be a member of FAPA in order to donate to the PAC. We need all types of donations. Recurring or one-time donations.
Our PAC link is https://www.fapaonline.org/donations/
Please give all that you can to the PAC.
We need all PAs, PA students, Pre-PA Students, and any others to donate now to the PAC!

Folks, I am not going to lie to you. Our PA profession here in Florida is in a crisis. This Bill needs to pass for our profession to survive and to thrive. Our upcoming session (March-May, 2021) in Tallahassee, FL is the best session for this to happen!

I was President of FAPA over 10 years ago. I am back as FAPA President for this Bill to become a reality and to inspire PAs and students to become leaders. Please join our efforts so we can make this happen!
