The Georgia Association of Physician Assistants (GAPA) promotes high quality, cost-effective, accessible health care as part of a physician-directed PA/physician team and provides for personal and professional development of PAs. Since 1975, GAPA has represented the PA profession among state and national legislators, kept PAs up to date on reimbursement and legislative news, offering continuing education opportunities, and much more. Before coming to Piedmont, Cyn worked with both orthopedic and neurosurgical spine surgeons in Brunswick, Atlanta and Macon. She assists Dr. Stevenson on a wide variety of surgeries and is also able to work autonomously in clinic to offer patients more immediate care. She has also served as a guest lecturer for medical and PA students at Mercer University.
