2014 PA of the Year

Pam Engle, PA-C is the 2014 PA of the Year!

Pam was one of the first PA's in the state of Alaska and has blazed the trail for all of us PA's. She has helped the community to know what a PA is and helped make PA's the force that we are today. 


She has a great depth of knowledge both in the medical field and out of the medical field. To quote one of her MD colleagues, "She helped many physicians learn.  She likely wouldn't ask for credit, but given the turnover of physicians . . . she did a lot to help many of them function . . . and grow up medically in general."
