AAPA is a partner in the Joining Forces Campaign.

AAPA's Caring for Veterans and Military Families Initiative endeavors to bring awareness to all PAs so that they can provide the military and veteran communities the care and support they need. This dedicated webpage has been created to provide resources for PAs to utilize in caring for veterans and their families/caregivers; disseminate information related to new research around veterans health; and highlight the work of PAs who are serving our nation's heroes.
The purpose of this initiative is to implement a statewide campaign that encourages agencies and organizations from a variety of provider sectors (including healthcare, social services, education, and others) to ask the question, “Have you or a family member ever served in the military?,” and provide information and assistance to providers regarding what to do when the answer is “Yes.”
