PA Week October 6-12 

Each year from October 6-12, we celebrate National PA week, which recognizes the PA Profession and its contributions to the nation's health. This week is also an opportunity to raise awareness and visibility of the profession. Before it was a weeklong event, National PA Day was first celebrated on October 6, 1987, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the first graduating class of PAs from the Duke University PA program. October 6 is also the birthday of the profession’s founder, Eugene A. Stead, Jr., MD. Now the profession is 50 years strong!

September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

 

Did you know that the percentage of children with obesity in the United States has more than tripled since the 1970s!

  • Today, about one in five school-aged children (ages 6–19) has obesity.  
  • Only 1 in 3 children are physically active every day.
  • Children now spend more than 7.5 hours a day in front of a screen.
  • Children with obesity are at higher risk for having other chronic health conditions and diseases that impact physical health, such as asthma, sleep apnea, bone and joint problems, type 2 diabetes, and risk factors for heart disease.
  • Overweight children have a 70% chance of being overweight adults. 
  • Children with obesity are bullied and teased more than their normal weight peers, and are more likely to suffer from social isolation, depression, and lower self-esteem.
