Civilian PA of the Year
Earl Morse, Capt, USAF (RET), PA-C, Civilian PA of the Year
Prior to presenting Capt. Morse with his 2009 Civilian PA of the Year award, Veterans Caucus Board Member Tim Egan acknowledged his contributions through his involvement in community service. He is a person with a willingness to truly give of himself not only as a physician assistant but as an Air Force Veteran who gives back by assisting our service heroes to see their memorial in Washington DC free of charge. His dedication to this cause and our veterans is befitting this gentleman and his consummate professionalism.
