Thanks for making history!

Congratulations to our students and alumni for creating a new endowment for the PA program

Hard work pays off! The PA Classes of 2018 and 2019 – and now 2020 – have worked tirelessly with the CHP Alumni Association to create a first-ever endowment to benefit the Physician Assistant Program. The PA program was the only CHP department without its own dedicated fund…until now.

Sandra Banas, MST 77, RPA-C, PAS Program Chair noted, “As the program has grown, we felt the natural next step was to establish a dedicated fund to provide a direct way for students, alumni and others connected to the program to give back. This endowment will provide funding for the program in perpetuity.

 

“Now we need the help of our alumni to grow the endowment,” Banas added, “Ten years ago the program did not even exist and now we have more than 150 alumni from coast to coast.”

 

The larger the endowment, the greater the impact it will have on the PA program. The new endowment will support the educational enrichment of PA students and faculty. This could include, but is not limited to, scholarships, lab equipment, guest speakers and professional development.

 

This is a terrific accomplishment for the future of the PA program!” said CHP Alumni Board President Tony Kurec, MS ’86, H(ASCP)DLM.
