PA Student Society
The Clarkson University Physician Assistant Student Society (CU PASS) is dedicated to healthcare within the community of Potsdam, NY & St. Lawrence County as a whole. We recognize that learning takes place both in & outside of the classroom, and we strive to strengthen our activity within the community. Making the Physician Assistant Program well known within Potsdam as forming both knowledgeable as well as compassionate and empathetic providers is our aspiration, and being the first class of the program, we are certainly taking strides to make this goal a reality. In our inaugural year, we have reached out to Hospice of St. Lawrence County, and are currently working to promote community health awareness and preventative medicine. We are currently working to raise funding for various community health care initiatives as well planning for an international mission trip, where students will be able to bring medicine and treatment to the people of the Dominican Republic in January, 2014.
