Valentin Elected President of Kentucky Academy of Physician Assistants

Published: Jun 13, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 13, 2013) − Virginia Valentin, assistant professor of physician assistant studies at the University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences, has been elected president of the Kentucky Academy of Physician Assistants (KAPA). Her term will begin July 1.

 

Valentin became the Central Region Representative for the Kentucky Academy of Physician Assistants in 2008 and began holding monthly continuing education dinners in Lexington for physician assistants.  In 2012, Valentin accepted the position of president-elect and KAPA worked closely with the Kentucky Medical Association in Frankfort to eliminate the 18-month direct supervision law.

 

"My goal is to work with all health care providers to increase access to care for all Kentuckians," Valentin said.

 

Valentin is currently pursuing a doctorate of public health with a focus in epidemiology. The Kentucky Academy of Physician Assistants serves the needs of PA's and PA students who work or reside in Kentucky. KAPA's website serves its members and the public by providing a forum for services and ideas designed to strengthen and promote the PA profession throughout Kentucky.

 

KAPA will strive to publicize the contributions of PAs to patients, employers, and policy makers. As the voice and advocate of PAs in Kentucky, KAPA promotes continuing education for its members, provides PA employment information to PAs and physicians, and strengthens the role of PAs by supporting and encouraging membership in KAPA.
