- In this series of letters dating from August 17, 1979 to September 27, 1979, Carl Fasser ask 28 questions that he has been asked by physician assistants during phone conversations and in letters about the NCCPA. He requests that David Glaser, Executive Director of the NCCPA, address these questions in writing. Mr. Glaser responds to these questions in a 12 page letter dated September 27, 1979. The questions range from "How did NCCPA come about?" to "Who designed the initial examination for the primary care physician?" to Has the NCCPA addressed the issue of recertification and, if so, in what way?"
