The Physician Assistant Studies program is directing some Halloween fun towards a good cause. The cohort went trick-or-treating for hunger in the Canisius neighborhood on Monday night, collecting a truck-load of non-perishable food items for the hungry and homeless. The initiative was the first in the group’s week-long service project.
The Canisius College Physician Assistant (PA) Studies program is proud to celebrate PA Appreciation Week. This is a nationally recognized week of acknowledgment and celebration for the profession, and a time when we like to educate our communities about our role in healthcare and well-being on a global scale.
Did you know that PAs have more than 400 million patient interactions each year and at least 91 percent of patients feel PAs improve healthcare outcomes?
Also, did you know PAs perform thousands of hours of medical training, which does not stop once they graduate from school?
To learn more, stop by the Science Hall atrium this Thursday and Friday for more information and a treat!
On Thursday, October 7, the Frank G. Raichle Pre-Law Center and the Charles S. Desmond pre-law chapter of Phi Alpha Delta will mark the college’s annual commemoration of Constitution Day. Members of Phi Alpha Delta will be located at a table just inside the entrance to the library, and will distribute pocket Constitutions to members of the campus community from 9:30-11:00 a.m.. The U.S. Congress approved the declaration of Constitution Day in 2005 in response to legislative efforts to formally recognize the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787.
