Where will I park?

What will we talk about?
This is your opportunity to talk with state leaders about your practice and improving access to care for Iowans. We've been working with the Medical Society and other stakeholders to improve flexibility to PA practice and increase access to quality care. We're looking to help solve workforce issues related to the forecasted shortage of PAs (due to retirement or relocation) as well as the looming shortage of Physician providers by increasing flexibility within statutes and rules and allowing for better collaboration within the healthcare team. By doing this, we hope to increase PA retention rates following graduation as well as increase recruitment from other states.

Is there a set ending time?
There's no set end time for this event. We finish up our legislative day in the rotunda, meeting with individual legislators. Once you've seen those from your district, you can feel free to network with other PA colleagues and grab some lunch at one of the excellent nearby restaurants.
