Bumping this thread back up to share my photo of Kimmie Meissner, taken after the Hall of Fame ceremony on January 25, 2020 (lucky me! :)): https://twitter.com/SylviaUnseen/status/1286706186876792832/photo/1

USFS website got revamped not long after this thread was created, so here's the new link to the original press release dated Dec. 16, 2019:

Here's a photo from the Hall of Fame ceremony (Charlie, Meryl; Damon Allen who accepted on behalf of his coach, Kathy Casey; Kimmie) that was posted on USFS' FB page: https://www.facebook.com/usfigureskating/photos/a.498111616341/10157111181941342

WXYZ-TV Detroit Channel 7 aired a short segment on Davis/White's induction (but could only show the same USFS photo linked above) & old SOI Detroit practice footage:

I'm almost scared to ask, but do you remember what the bad news was?
Sorry, I don't. Maybe it was comp withdrawals - that's usually around the time Nats withdrawals are announced, or maybe some other bad skating news....it was after the GPF. 🤷‍♀️

Bumping this thread back up because this happy news was tweeted today by Meissner (BIG congratulations to her! :cheer2:): https://twitter.com/kimmiemeissner/status/1435248612297019396
Well, it’s official I’ve never been more proud of a title/C in my life. 6 years of work towards this goal! It’s hard to imagine now the lost girl I was after stopping competitive skating and trying to figure “now what”. Can’t believe I can finally say, I’m a PA-C
Physician Assistants are healthcare providers who are educated at medical schools, in the medical model. They are trained to diagnose and treat illness, as well as provide preventative care in partnership with a physician supervisor. The “C” indicates that a PA is certified by the National Commission of Certification of PAs. This certification requires 100 hours of continuing medical education every two years, along with passing a national recertification exam every six years to maintain that very important “C”.
As members of healthcare teams, PAs take medical histories, examine and treat patients, make diagnoses, prescribe medications, order and interpret lab work and imaging, refer to specialists, assist in surgery, counsel patients and perform minor procedures. PAs practice in a wide variety of specialties and settings. PAs often have many primary care patients who they care for over many years, who never meet the supervising physician. However, for more complicated patients a PA may consult with a physician or even ask the physician to assume care if it is outside of the PA's scope of practice and training.
