Healthcare Help Alert!

Imagine getting sick in the middle of your busy season. You've got clients booked, images to edit and all of a sudden you've come down with a bug! You hardly have time to visit a doctor.

Now you can skip the waiting room and take advantage of the latest membership benefit from PPA: Call-A-Doctor Plus (CADR+). It is a health and wellness program designed to save you time and money by using technology to provide patients with immediate access to healthcare services. You can call or chat with a certified physician 24/7 to describe your symptoms and get a prescription for treatment. This service normally costs $24.95 a month, but PPA members get their monthly subscription for just $8.95. Learn more about CADR+

Candidate Community on theLoop

This month, the CPP Candidate Community opened on theLoop to all PPA Members.

Feel free to share this Interest Form with potential CPP candidates!
