AANPANephrology Physician Assistants are found in all aspects of Nephrology practices: from dialysis rounds to hospital coverage to office patients. They are responsible for research studies, education of staff, new practitioners and patients through the Medicare Authorized 'Kidney Disease Education' classes. They manage inter-disciplinary teams at the dialysis units. AANPA, consisting of fellow and student members, is the AAPA authorized specialty constituent group with ties to all major national Nephrology groups.
AANPA won the AAPA 2008 award for the best constituent chapter!
This is the first time in the history of AAPA that a specialty has won the award. Shown are AANPA Treasurer Molly Lenahan and then Vice President Karen Burchell, accepting the plaque from Linda Contreras, AAPA constituent Chair.
