Dear Colleagues - 

October is the month to celebrate our profession! As our profession has grown, so has our celebration. I remember early on PAs were celebrated for one day in October, but now we are celebrated for a whole week, specifically October 6-12th this year. This year, the SDPA decided to “invest” in a “Thank a Derm PA” public education campaign. The campaign officially launched on October 6th; however, you will see references well past PA Week, and the content can be used for years to come. Campaign content includes PA week posters, selfies, thank you cards, and videos that a dermatology practice can incorporate to celebrate and thank their Derm PAs. Make sure to make use of the campaign resources to post your PA team picture and share it with your colleagues, friends, and family.  Keep an eye on SDPA social feeds and our website as the SDPA continues to promote the “Thank a Derm PA” campaign all the way through the upcoming Fall Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Speaking of the Fall Conference, I am thrilled to report that we are on track to shatter event attendance records in Scottsdale! Once again, the CME team has done an excellent job preparing fabulous educational programming for our attendees, as evidenced by the excitement that continues to build as we lead up to this conference.   
Thank you to all PA’s for the great care and dedication you give to patients, and for your continued support of the SDPA. I hope to see you in Scottsdale next month as we continue our celebration of SDPA’s 25th Anniversary.
