Pre-PA Student Outreach
The OSPA Racial Equity Task Force works to address the racial health equity gap that is a healthcare crisis in America. This subcommittee addresses the vast underrepresentation of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) in our profession by collaborating with the K-12 education system and colleges throughout Oregon to increase the number of BIPOC candidates who successfully enter into the PA profession.
