    AAPA has put out the Call for Speakers and as PAHPM has done in the past, we are ready to help!

    Speaking is a great opportunity to share your skills, educate fellow PAs, and grow the fields of palliative medicine and hospice care for PAs. It also looks great on your CV!  If you haven't spoken nationally before, or are a regular educator, let us know how we can help!

    We are gathering Palliative Medicine & Hospice Care topic ideas, and sharing to facilitate those who would like to coordinate talks and receive an endorsement from PAHPM.  As in years past, we will review at our next Member Meeting July 22nd, and endorse those speakers and topics who we know will help further our field for PAs.

    If interested in sharing your topics, click here!
