Duke University recognizes PA studies chairman Blessing

August 2003

Duke University Medical Center inducted J. Dennis Blessing, Ph.D., associate professor and chair of the department of physician assistant studies, into its 2002 Alumni Hall of Fame.

"Its a nice honor to be inducted into the Alumni Hall of Fame," Dr. Blessing said. "Duke is a well-known university with more than 1,000 physician assistant graduates, many of whom are distinguished leaders in the field. Its great to be included in that group."

A 1976 Duke graduate, Dr. Blessing came to the Health Science Center three years ago to begin the physician assistant program, which graduated its first class in December.

Dr. Blessing also has been honored with the Distinguished Alumnus Award from Duke Universitys Physician Assistant Program.
