Get to know CAPA Leadership!

Rachel Weinzimmer, Chief Delegate

Hi all! I love being involved with CAPA for all the great connections and amazing PAs that I get to work with, along with all the forward moving work that CAPA does for all PAs in Colorado. I have been an emergency medicine PA for 9 years and am the Director of Didactic Education and Assistant Professor at the Colorado Mesa University PA Program (Go Mavs!). One of the biggest issues PAs face today is legislative parity with other professions and lack of understanding about the capabilities of a PA. PAs have fantastic training and are held to the same medical standards as other professions, but we need to do a better job of selling our profession to the public. I have seen this come through in stark and frustrating ways in the legislative process. We (PAs) need to continue to educate others about our profession and training by focusing on why PAs are excellent healthcare providers (the data agrees!).
