UNR Med PA class of 2021 AAPA Conference Fundraiser
We have been informed by conference organizers, that this year's AAPA Conference has been canceled due to COVID-19. While we are disappointed that we aren't able to attend this valuable conference, we fully respect and understand the decision that was made. All money raised will go to fund students attending the 2021 APPA Conference. Thank you for your generous support. We hope you stay healthy and safe during this uncertain times.
Send UNR Med Physician Assistant (PA) Class of 2021 to the AAPA Conference
The second Physician Assistant (PA) Class of 2021 at the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine (UNR Med) is currently fundraising to attend the American Academy of Physician Assistants Conference 2020 in Nashville. Our goal is to send fourteen students who will participate in the conference and bring their educational experience back to enrich their community and program. Conference opportunities include connecting with over 7,000 PAs and PA students from across the country, participation in the challenge bowl (medical quiz competition amongst other PA programs), and the opportunity to attend education sessions and workshops.
WHO WE ARE!
The PA Studies program was designed to offer students from across Nevada--particularly those with extensive experience in health care, including military veterans, emergency medical technicians, and paramedics-- the opportunity to obtain an advanced degree in medicine. Upon successful completion of the program, 24 new graduates will be prepared to enter Nevada's health care workforce and make an immediate impact on Nevadans' access to medical care. These graduates are an integral aspect to the future of health care in Nevada.
Help us get to Nashville!
The 2020 AAPA conference takes place in Nashville, Tennessee May 16-20. Our goal is to raise $7,000 which will cover half the costs to send 14 students to the conference. This funding will cover our airfare.
Conference Registration: $165 per Student (includes conference fees, breakfast, and lunch)
4 Night Hotel Stay Shared by 4 Students: $260/Student
Roundtrip Airfare: $500 per Student
Total trip costs: $925 per student
Fundraising goal per student: $500
As full-time students in an intensive program, $925 to attend this conference is a steep expense. We are appreciative of any support you have to give to help offset our costs. Your donation will greatly impact the UNR Med PA program and the health of Nevadans!
We thank you for your consideration and support
