Today is Pathologists’ Assistant Day, founded in 2014 by the American Association of Pathologists’ Assistants (AAPA) to recognize the vital role every PA plays in protecting our health. Their meticulous attention to detail helps pathologists detect the abnormalities in tissue samples which lead to the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
At first glance, the site might look a bit off-putting to those who don’t have a positive response to scalpels:
But we’re happy to report the AAPA goes all out for its promotional materials. The artwork for the inaugural Pathologists’ Assistant Day was outstanding.
This year’s logo is available on playing cards, mouse pads, refrigerator magnets and luggage tags.
We lost count at twenty-two lungs and nine intestines. Happy Pathologists’ Assistant Day, everybody!
