A few weeks ago I was invited to talk on our local NPR radio station's Up To Date Program hosted by Steve Kraske and was joined by Dr. Jeff Hornsby, Interim Director, Regnier Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation UMKC; Ryan Bennett, Vice President of Idle Smart; and Mike Farmer - CEO of Leap.it. One of the radio program listeners, an executive of an apparel manufacturing company with international reach, contacted me to offer AudreySpirit his help (as a personal philanthropic gesture!). I met with him and the level of executive and practical guidance he's willing to provide and connect me to "insiders" is no less...
The Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP) works hard to advance each state's public health initiatives according to Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Bureau standards. Audrey led me to a new world of advocacy for children and youth with special health care needs that has morphed into state and national level advocacy opportunities which include adults. Here you can read more about how I got involved, and how you can too! http://www.amchp.org/AboutAMCHP/Newsletters/Pulse/Archive/2014/MayJune2014/Pages/Real-Life-Story.aspx
