American Academy of PAs


Two Tough Issues...

Gardner began working with AAPA as two of their most significant issues were emerging. PAs were facing a tough fight over re-certification testing and determining whether or not to follow the Nurse Practitioners into an area called "practice authority." Gardner devised aggressive programs to engaged AAPA's 58,000 PA members. Using both media relations and social media, AAPA successfully defeated a re-certification plan that would have crippled the profession.
