Calling all students, faculty, alumni and friends of the Physician Assistant Studies (PAS) program at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio!
The Department of PAS is holding its 10th anniversary celebration from 7 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6, at Pedrotti’s North Wind Ranch, 13715 FM 1560 N. in Helotes. The celebration will be held in the Shooting Star Building.
The event will include conversation, dinner and line dancing, as well as the establishment of the Student Enrichment Fund, designed to offer support for tutoring services, community service initiatives, student research projects and scholarships for future PA students.
Visit with faculty and friends
“This will be a great opportunity for all of us to get reacquainted and catch up on what we have been doing over the past several years,” said Glenn Forister, M.S., PA-C, associate professor/clinical and chair of the Department of Physician Assistant Studies.
One of the department's founding faculty members, Dennis Blessing, Ph.D., now associate dean of the School of Health Professions (SHP), will be on hand to reminisce, as well as several former faculty members.
“I’m especially looking forward to seeing PAs from my class,” said Julie Dylla, PA-C, president of the first PA class in 2000. The first graduates “walked the stage” in 2002. At least three other class presidents are expected to attend.
