Bauer named to Board of Nebraska Academy of Physician Assistants

Allison Bauer, PA-C was recently appointed to the Nebraska Academy of Physician Assistants (NAPA). She will be one of four House of Delegates (HOD) Representatives who will be speaking on behalf of the state at the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA). The AAPA is the national professional society for Physician Assistants, serving as a resource to PAs, providing continuing medical education, strengthening public relations to the profession, advocating for quality patient care, and monitoring legislation.

Bauer was a student representive at AAPA while she attended school and is looking forward to getting involved again. Her current term will be one year. “This year is going to be very exciting as AAPA has made a motion to form a new certifying body for PA’s. It can spell some changes to the PA profession if the proper certifying body is unavailable. The generalist and broad beginnings of PA education makes us viable to fit into broad situations that if we are required to declare a specialty may affect many professionals and their patients,” Bauer said.

Bauer has been a part of the healthcare team at Henderson Health Care for over 6 years. Located in Henderson, Nebraska, Henderson Health Care is a full-service medical facility encompassing a critical access hospital, two rural health clinics, specialty clinics, diagnostic services, long term care, assisted living and independent living.
