PA Students Help with Thanksgiving Meals

For the third year in a row, students and faculty in the Physician Assistant Studies Program organized a food drive for the EAC Network in Hempstead, collecting 774 non-perishable items that were used in part to provide Thanksgiving meals for local families in need.

“The PA profession is rooted in improving the lives of others and Hofstra’s students were thrilled to lend a helping hand to their community just in time for the holiday season,” said Megan Dauscher’17, director of outreach for the Hofstra chapter of the Student Academy of the American Academy of Physician Assistants.

Over the past three years, the PA Studies program has collected 2,280 canned and other nonperishable food items for the EAC Network, a non-profit human services agency with 70 programs across Long Island and New York City.
