Dr. Benjamin Carson recently compared homosexuality to bestiality and pedophilia. As the leading national professional organization for Physician Assistants and an important voice in healthcare, such a speaker does not represent the core values of non-discrimination that the AAPA and Physician Assistants represent. His invitation to deliver a keynote address at the AAPA national conference should be cancelled immediately.
