About Kelly-Rahn-Turnage (KRT) Fellowship of Physician Assistant Students
Kelly-Rahn-Turnage (KRT) Fellowship of Physician Assistant Students was founded by the inaugural class of UAMS Physician Assistant Program in 2013. This organization was created and is governed by the students. KRT was named after three individuals at UAMS who were instrumental in the development of the PA Program. Patricia Kelly, PhD, PA-C was the founding Chair and Program Director of the PA Program. Daniel Rahn, MD, was the Chancellor of UAMS at that time and was the initial advocate of the program. Richard Turnage, MD, was the founding medical director of the PA Program. However this is not a comprehensive list of all contributors to the UAMS PA Program, many individuals were influential in its development.
This year the KRT organization will hold its sixth annual 5K race benefiting the Arkansas Food Bank Food for Kids Program. Since the first race in 2014, the students have donated nearly $32,000 to this program, which has provided 160,000 meals to children throughout Arkansas. The students are passionate about serving their community, and are thankful for the many supporters of the race throughout the years that have helped them achieve their goal.
