Civilians in space: Who are the astronauts flying on Falcon 9 and what is their mission?

Hayley Arceneaux

Arceneaux is a physician assistant at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the same hospital where she had been treated for bone cancer, she told the “Today” show. She will be the youngest American to go to space at the age of 29 and the first person with a prosthetic on a space mission after she lost her leg to cancer. She’s the crew’s chief medical officer, Reuters reported.

From AAPA:
Greetings, advocates, and happy holidays. Hopefully by now you have seen the exciting news: last night, the president signed the Coronavirus Relief & Omnibus Agreement, which Congress had passed just before Christmas. Included in the omnibus bill was “The PA Direct Payment Act (S.596/H.R. 1052)”, the legislation you advocated for during LAS in March. Once the provisions go into effect in 2022, PAs will be permitted to permitted to receive direct payment under their own name and National Provider Identifier number, placing PAs on equal footing with other Medicare providers who can be directly paid for services provided to Medicare patients. This is a big win for PAs, and has been a top priority for AAPA and PA advocates, as direct payment for PAs is one of the three important legislative pillars of Optimal Team Practice.

I wanted to make sure all of you had heard the good news, because you have reason to celebrate thanks the work you all did during LAS and which so many of you have put in over the years, reaching out to your legislators, sharing your stories, and building strong relationships with them, all of which helped members of Congress understand the problem and help us find a solution. As I always say, grassroots advocacy works, and we have to just keep chipping away, until we achieve victory, like this one this week.

AAPA applauds the primary sponsors of the bill, Senators John Barrasso (R-WY) and Tom Carper (D-DE) in the Senate and U.S. Reps. Terri Sewell (D-AL) and Adrian Smith (R-NE) in the House of Representatives, for shepherding this bill through Congress. If you have a moment to thank them via email, phone call, or tweet, please do.

I know you all will continue to be advocates for the profession; we still have much work to do at the state and federal levels. Please stay connected by joining GAIN (AAPA’s grassroots network), contributing to PA PAC, and reading AAPA’s advocacy news updates.

Again, many thanks for your advocacy work, and congratulations. Stay safe and well…Happy New Year to all! Hope to see you in person in 2021!

Fondly,

Kristin
