Our co-founder Stephanie Cracknell is a nurse, a tech entrepreneur, and a policy advocate. She recently wrote a guest blog for the Microsoft in Health website that details her experiences on VFI’s Policy and Advocacy Trip to Washington, DC, last fall.
As quoted from VFI’s blog:
“Stephanie writes that she stepped out of her “comfort zone as a nurse practitioner,” but the trip gave her a chance to learn “about the inner workings of our nation’s legislative system and how healthcare practitioners can effect change for the better.” Stephanie goes on to discuss her activities in Washington, including how she advocated for legislation—the LEADS Act—to help build greater trust in cloud technologies.”
