Welcome to the AAPA Veterans Caucus
Welcome to the new home site of the AAPA Veterans Caucus. The Veterans Caucus is a constituent caucus of the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA).
The Veterans Caucus is made up of people who care.
The Caucus represents Physician Assistants (PAs) who are veterans of the Uniformed Services. Many of our members continue to serve our country in the active, reserve or guard components. We also have many affiliate (non-military) members who also support our goals.
Thanks to all who made Topics in the Tropics 2013 a success!!!
See you in Boston-- May, 2014.

Assisted Living Pilot Program for Veterans with TBI
Public Law 110-181, the Fiscal Year 2008 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), Title XVII, Section 1705 directed Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to implement a five year pilot program to assess the effectiveness of providing Assisted Living (AL) services to eligible Veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) to enhance their rehabilitation, quality of life, and community integration. In May 2011, a national contract was awarded to 20 contractors providing more than 150 sites of care across the US. All contractors are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) with certification in residential rehabilitation in a brain injury program.

From Caucus member Dallas Lipscomb: The VFW Post 1389 Elephant Butte, New Mexico received my God Loves the Grunt print for display on Veterans Day 2013. As you can see in the photograph this is a fitting tribute to all veterans that includes the "America's White Table." The VFW Post will display this print for the next year. After that time the print we will tranferred to the Veterans Museum in Truth or Consequences, NM for display on Veterans Day 2014 and continue for the following year. This will be the start of a new trandition for this "Grunt." The Veterans Caucus applauds Dallas.
