Nov 17, 2023

Dr. Keith Young, founding director of physician assistant studies. Nicole Ackley, director of clinical education, and clinical assistant professors Kate Nelson, Julie Elsigan, and Ashley Disney recently attended this year's PA Education Association (PAEA) Education Forum in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

The forum is a time for faculty and staff from PA programs across the world to learn, connect, and celebrate the profession.

As attendees, St. Bonaventure faculty enjoyed several presentations and workshops on topics related to PA education, including the opening keynote address by Crystal Washington, futurist and technology strategist with CWM Enterprises, who discussed how to integrate technology into the classroom with the use of artificial intelligence.

As new faculty members, Elsigan and Disney, who started at SBU in September, attended a Faculty 101 Workshop.
