Posted May 4, 2018 Blog post I wrote for BillTrack50 on a new Virginia law giving full practice authority for nurse practitioners. For it? Against it? Let us know.
Posted Mar 31, 2018 Si, se puede! One of MOB Advocacy's Michael O'Brien's first advocacy experiences was showing a group of high school students from the Cesar Chavez Public Charter Schools for Public Policy (Washington, DC) the practical side of policy and advocacy. The students started a grassroots and direct lobbying campaign to establish a national Cesar Chavez memorial. We finished with a Hill Day, where the students got to lobby Members of Congress and staff. That was back in 2002. In true DC fashion, it only took 10 years.
