Diversity in Healthcare: Why Does It Matter?

Saturday, February 19, 2022 | 10:30–11:30am EST
This webinar program has been reviewed and is approved for a maximum of 1 AAPA Category 1 CME credits by the PA Review Panel. Live attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and share information.

Presented by Kathryn Reed, PA-C

Kathryn Reed works with the University of Pittsburgh’s Physician Assistant Studies Hybrid Program, an almost fully virtual PA program that will welcome its first class in January 2023 pending ARC-PA accreditation. The hybrid program was created to reach people who have barriers to attending a traditional PA program, such as the location in which they live. Currently, Reed and her faculty peers are focused on interviewing applicants, preparing for an accreditation site visit, and planning the curriculum.

Reed is also the vice chair for equity, inclusion, and community engagement, a formal role with the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Physician Assistant Studies. She says it’s important that roles like this be legitimized with titles and appropriate pay, as well as a workload that’s incorporated into providers’ existing job responsibilities.
