THANK YOU!!!

I have been very busy lately and apologize for not having posted this earlier.   I want to thank all of the people that made the 2nd Pre-PA conference a success!  I had help from so many people, and so many offers it was a bit overwhelming at times.  I have posted some pictures from the conference below. 

I would also like to thank Dan Wagener who runs one of AAPA's blogs called PAs Connect. He gave me an amazing opportunity to write a blog post for their site and I am deeply honored. Please checkout and bookmark AAPA 2 microblogs: http://www.pasconnect.org/ and http://pastudentessentials.com/.  Here is the link to the article I wrote: http://www.pasconnect.org/top-5-things-ive-learned-in-physician-assistant-school-so-far/.
