Exhibit & Sponsor

It is once again time to begin planning for the annual Kansas Academy of Physician Assistants CME program.  The dates for this year’s event are October 13-15, 2022 and again we will be at the Aloft Hotel, 3642 N Oliver St in Wichita, Kansas. Our previous CME events have been successful in part to the generous support from the pharmaceutical companies.

We will continue to offer a variety of beneficial and timely topics for Kansas PAs. We are asking that each company interested in sponsoring a part of the program please return this enclosed sheet as soon as possible. Sponsorships with or without speakers are welcome.

A preliminary agenda for the CME event will be under development later this Summer.

We are pleased to invite you and your company to participate as an exhibitor at our CME event.
