Emory PA students help Surgeon General's 5K

PAs Volunteer for Surgeon General’s 5K Run

On May 20, 2015 PA program Students, staff and faculty were able to volunteer at the 5 K Run sponsored by the 19th and current Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek H Murthy. The race took place in Piedmont Park in Atlanta in connection with the US Public Health Service Scientific and Training Symposium May 18-21 in Atlanta.

The PA representatives were able to help by directing runners from the busses to the start line at Greystone Hall, assisted with APFTs (Army Physical Fitness Test) and set up and handed out water and snacks to runners who completed the race. The highlight for the students was to meet the Surgeon General, Dr. Murthy (see photo).
