Today, I’ll be speaking to 200 nurses, members of the Minnesota Nurses Association, about how their personal stories can provide powerful support to their advocacy for “minimum standards of care” in Minnesota hospitals. At present, there is no minimum standard. That means there are no limits on the number of patients a nurse can be assigned to care for at one time.
Tomorrow will be the 13th year I’ll meet with a new class of WomenHeart Champions, amazing women with heart disease who are using their stories to build strong regional centers of support and education for the 42.7 million women currently living with some form of cardiovascular disease.
And Tuesday, I’ll hear the challenges library professionals face when gathering and spreading stories from their patrons about the essential role libraries play in their communities.
I am lucky to do this work.
