Bayhealth Kent General and Milford Memorial are celebrating Physician Assistant Week from October 6 through 12.
Held every year, National Physician Assistant Week is used to increase awareness of both the physician assistant profession and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
Each day, more than 84,000 certified physician assistants provide patients with the medical care they need for today and in the future. Physician assistants practice medicine in nearly every specialty and setting. No matter where they practice or the reason for a patient visit, physician assistants can talk with patients about avoiding chronic disease and living healthier lives. As skilled care providers and prevention ambassadors, they are an essential part of the health care team.
