Professor Appointed by the NCAPA

10.30.2012

High Point University Professor Linda SekhonHIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 30, 2012 – Dr. Linda Sekhon, associate professor and chair of the department of physician assistant studies at High Point University, was appointed to the North Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants (NCAPA) Governmental Affairs Committee.

Sekhon was appointed by the NCAPA due to her past experience with the Pennsylvania Society of Physician Assistants where she served as the chair for the Governmental Affairs Committee in addition to being a liaison to the Pennsylvania State Board of Medicine.

The mission of the NCAPA is to promote and represent the Physician Assistant profession in North Carolina through education, quality services and advocacy of optimal health care. The Government Affairs Committee for the academy provides oversight and coordination with lobbyist, allied organizations and the General Assembly on legislative and advocacy issues.

In addition, Sekhon was appointed to the Standing Rules Committee for the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA). She was given this appointment for her service as well. The AAPA is the national professional society for physician assistants representing more than 84,000 certified PAs across all medical and surgical specialties in the U.S. This appointment was a natural transition for Sekhon as she was a distinguished fellow of the AAPA and a member of the Governance Commission.

“Serving the physician assistant profession in these capacities provides me with the insight to best prepare future High Point University physician assistant students to be leaders in the profession,” says Sekhon.
