After several years on the Board of Directors for the American Academy of Physician Assistants, including his last three as president-elect, president, and past president, faculty member Robert Wooten has taken on new leadership roles within physician assistant organizations. He is now the president of the NCAPA Endowment, and on January 1, 2015, he will become a trustee for the Physician Assistant History Society.

The Endowment for the North Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants promotes the future of the PA profession in the state by granting educational scholarships and by supporting philanthropic and research activities. Donations can be made to specific funds, such as the Joyce Nichols Community Service Grant, but the Endowment also welcomes undirected donations to support its general mission, which includes scholarships for PA students. Along with other members of the Board of Trustees, Wooten will be involved in efforts to expand the Endowment through fundraising endeavors and reaching out to the corporate community for support.

The Physician Assistant History Society works to preserve and share the history and legacy of the PA profession. Its vision and mission are to bring PA history alive by inspiring the next generation of PAs, patients, and policymakers and to illustrate how PAs continue to make a difference in our society. As a trustee, Wooten will be sitting on one or two of the History Society’s committees and doing other work to advance its mission.

When asked about his new roles, Wooten said, “it’s important to give back so that others will have a chance to succeed.” The Wake Forest PA Program is known for emphasizing leadership. Wooten stands out as a role model and mentor for students looking to develop their own leadership skills, and we congratulate him on his new roles.
