Family Health observes Physician Assistant Week
MOBILE, Ala. — Physician Assistant (PA) Week is being observed from October 6-12. This time is set aside to recognize the PA profession and its contributions to the nation’s health. This year’s theme is “PAs Go Beyond!”
Attentive, experienced, skillful, and compassionate, PAs devote their lives to providing quality medical care. As licensed clinicians who practice medicine in every specialty and setting, PAs are dedicated to expanding access to care and transforming health and wellness through patient-centered, team-based medical practice.
Family Health, the primary care division of the Mobile County Health Department, has several PAs on its staff. PAs are leaders in primary care and mental health, providing essential preventive care that leads to improved health outcomes and stronger communities. They empower patients to make informed decisions about their health, communicating information plainly and ensuring no questions are left unanswered.
“We wish to take this time to thank our PAs at Family Health and in our community for the excellent care they provide,” said Kelly Warren, Executive Director for Family Health.
Since its inception in 1979, Family Health has provided services to the uninsured, underinsured, insured, and medically underserved populations of Mobile County.
