Why you should donate
by Marcie Johnson, MPA, PA-C
While AMPHL is run completely by volunteers, we still seek community support for our website, administration, and our amazing biennial conferences. We have great pride in our professional website and expansive network. Every member has benefitted from AMPHL’s trusted reputation and the credibility of a true organization.
The intangible benefits to AMPHL are richer and more vital than the tangible ones. As a PA (and when I was a student), I benefit from staying up-to-date with membership dues to my national and state PA organizations, as well as within my particular field of interest. With my memberships, my patients and colleagues know that I’m well-connected and informed of the latest in my professional niche. One of the running themes when renewing my memberships (which are far, far more than $25/year), is that PAs need legislative support. PAs are a minority in the health care world, compared to physicians and nurses. Thus, it is important to support the people and organizations that are lobbying on my behalf, nationally and state-wide.
AMPHL is the go-to organization that lobbies on your behalf. We are the organization that provides information on legislation, lawsuits, stethoscope companies, and clear surgical mask development. We are the first line of contact for schools and employers looking for information on why they should accept a student or hire a medical professional with a hearing loss. We are the contact point for disability support services who are asking for recommendations on how to accommodate you. We are the growing organization that future students look to for role models. We are the alumni who paved the road for generations to come, and who mentor those coming after us. We are the official body representing our own minority in the greater allied health field.
We are stronger united.
Welcome to AMPHL!
