The Minnesota Academy of Physician Assistants (MAPA) owes its strong foundation to the work that CarrollPoppen did in his many roles on the board and in working with colleagues, legislators and medical staff at the Mayo Clinic.
Carroll was the utmost gentleman in everything he did, but was never afraid to "go to bat" for the profession and our place in medicine in Minnesota and at the national level.
So many of us have been touched by Carroll's efforts.
Let it not be forgotten that Carroll was the auctioneer at our student scholarship fundraisers, and due to his clever ways, the donors kept bidding upward! Even the new PA students benefited from his efforts!
As PAs, we have not only become a force in medical care due to some of Carroll's work, but as colleagues and friends, we have been blessed to know such a great individual.
Carroll is gravely ill and in hospice. He would enjoy hearing from those colleagues who knew him.
