American Academy of Physician Assistants: Cancel Dr. Benjamin Carson's Conference Keynote Address

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.
