We urge you to sign and share this petition to assist La Academia de Asociados Médicos de Puerto Rico (AAMPR) reach Puerto Rican legislators to form a law allowing PA’s to practice and bill as they do stateside with the main goal of providing care to the people of La Isla del Encanto.
"I have a vivid memory from when I was 17 years old, and I had to take my mom to the ER in San Juan, PR. She had abdominal pain and we spent a whole evening in the hospital waiting for her to be seen by a doctor. I remember her screaming, crying in pain and vomiting in the bathroom of the waiting room, which was not even that full of patients. Looking back, that would have never happened if PAs were allowed to practice freely in Puerto Rico."
~Nahomy Van Kampen, PA-C
“It was heartbreaking to walk past the line of patients waiting outside the hospital, knowing it was lawmakers that stood between me and an opportunity to help them.”
~Laura Juárez, PA-C
