2014 KAPA Legislative Day

KAPA DayThe UKPAS annual KAPA Legislative Day in Frankfort was held February 4, and it was a huge success. The UKPAS Class of 2015 was actively involved in advocating for the PA profession in Kentucky. Virginia Valentin, MCMS, PA-C, who is the current president of the Kentucky Association of Physician Assistants, worked with KAPA leadership to involve PA students in this event, which approximately 60 PA’s, UKPA students, and faculty attended. Physician Assistants were acknowledged in the House, and, in the Senate, Feb 4 was declared as PA day. KAPA has worked with KMA this year to bring forth Senate Bill 41, which will require 10 percent of chart notes to be co-signed by the supervising physician every 30 days.
