June president's bulletin
In the latest president's bulletin Jeannie Watkins, president of the Faculty of Physician Associates (FPA) discusses the media attention that physician associates have received of late.
'Negative press is always challenging, and can at times be disheartening. We would like to thank all of those who have responded on social media with positivity to counter some of the claims that we have seen recently. We are very proud of the excellent promotion and myth busting that all of you physician associates and physician associate students have been rallying together for on social media.
Thank you to all who have contributed to raising awareness of the physician associate role, and to those who have responded to trickier challenges on social media too. Keep up the good work!'
Jeannie also discusses the upcoming exciting FPA Annual Conference approaching in September, and the opportunity to enter the FPA Awards and submit abstracts for poster presentations.
