Over 1,000 people put one foot in front of another raising money and spreading awareness on May 15 for the Walk to Cure Arthritis. Held in Denver’s Washington Park, the event raised over $223,000 for the Arthritis Foundation and their mission to conquer arthritis.
MPP Infusion Center of Denver (ICOD) Administrative Assistant Heather Hudson staffed a booth at the walk and promoted ICOD’s services and passed out swag to over 600 walk participants.
The event featured a three-mile and one-mile course for families and participants with two and four legs, with dogs joining their human packs.

Located on the Riverwalk in downtown San Antonio, Texas, the Henry B Gonzalez Convention Center was the meeting place for the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) annual conference from May 14 to 18. Attending on Sunday, May 15, Regional Director of Infusion Operations Ken Idicula and Advance Practitioner Jene Butler represented MPP Infusion during the AAPA career fair.
Approximately 6,000 attendees at the conference could earn hours of CME, obtain career and practice tools, learn about the latest medical innovations, and partake in fun networking events. The AAPA career fair portion connected more than 700 job searchers to 42 employers from around the country.
The employers represented different practice settings, specialties, and sizes of health systems. The event is one of the premier opportunities for PAs and PA students to meet with recruiters, get their questions answered, and possibly get hired.
In preparation for future growth and to get the word out about their services, MPP Infusion staffed a booth at the career event. Idicula and Butler provided attendees with an overview of MPP Infusion services, an informational brochure, and business cards.
“We had a great turnout of about 150 visitors to our booth varying from PAs who are actively seeking employment to students that are graduating in August or December. Many of them were interested in our centers and mentioned pursuing opportunities with us as they come available,” said Idicula.
