The Highlight of My Week and an Appeal to Congress

With Vicki Shabo

I was at the Capitol for a a congressional briefing and policy discussion hosted by the National Partnership for Women & Families ("NPWF"). It was sponsored by The National Partnership for Women and Families.  I was there representing, The Women and Girls Foundation as a board member. It was an honor and a privilege to represent the organization, to hear from U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D – N.J.) and to be at The Capitol in an official capacity.


I was enlightened. I was inspired. I made contacts. It turns out that the NPWF has several initiatives that relate to my passion and my profession. There were presenters about Women's Health, Family Friendly Corporate policies and about patients rights to obtain their health records. In a word, they are my people!
