Topics in the Tropics 2021

Welcome to the Veterans Caucus, a recognized affiliate caucus of the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA)

Welcome to the home site of the Veterans Caucus. The Veterans Caucus is an affiliate caucus of the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA).

The Veterans Caucus is made up of people who care.

The Caucus represents Physician Assistants (PAs) who are veterans of the Uniformed Services. Many of our members continue to serve our country in the active, reserve or guard components. We also have many affiliate (non-military) members who also support our goals.


2020 Topics in the Tropics
Continuing Medical Education Conference- CANCELLED

After careful consideration of the ongoing spread of COVID-19 overseas and in the United States, the Veterans Caucus, Inc. Board of Directors decided not to conduct the Topics in the Tropics 2020 Annual Meeting in Cancun, Mexico, December, 9 - 12, 2020.

The Veterans Caucus has been monitoring the coronavirus situation with the health, safety, and well-being of our guests and members in mind. The Caucus Board of Directors arrived at this difficult decision after consulting with speakers, vendors, and other meeting participants, and gathering information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other public health authorities. Ultimately, the global nature of our meeting, rapidly escalating health concerns regarding the coronavirus, and ongoing travel and other restrictions made it impossible for us to hold the meeting at this time.

We urge those who were planning to attend the meeting to expedite travel cancellations.

Please contact the Airline, hotel and the shuttle service providers you used directly to request your full refund. 

Your 2020 registration fees can be applied to your registration fee for our 30th Anniversary Conference in Cancun in December 2021, avoiding any increase in fees or you may request a refund instead. 

To request a full refund of your paid registration fees, please email our Treasurer, Mike Milner directly.

We ask for your patience as we work diligently to address questions and provide additional information to our planned participants and guests.

Save the date, December 8 – 11, 2021 will be the Veterans Caucus 30th Anniversary of Topics in the Tropics and we look forward to seeing you there!
