About Us

PA Moms ® was founded in 2016 to bring PA Moms together around the world. Our goal is to provide each other with support, friendship, and camaraderie, while offering safe space to share each other’s medical knowledge. As Moms and medical professionals, we recognize the hardships of balancing life at home and our careers.

Our Mission

The mission of PA moms is both simple and profound: we will change lives, minds and medicine forever and for good by supporting and empowering each other in both the PA profession and motherhood.

We are dedicated to the advancement of the PA Profession and advocating for all PAs.

Nothing is more powerful than a #PAmom except for thousands of #PAmoms standing together ♥️
