As part of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) We Choose NPs national media campaign, AANP hosted Florida House of Representatives member Dr. Cary Pigman and others at a listening tour on February 5, 2020, in Tallahassee, Florida. There, AANP CEO David Hebert, AANP President Dr. Sophia Thomas, AANP Region 11 Director Dr. Doreen Cassarino and AANP Vice President of State Government Affairs Dr. Taynin Kopanos met with some of Florida's health care decision-makers to discuss the challenges that patients in Florida face and to share how full and direct access to nurse practitioners (NPs) can position the state to better address those needs. Media coverage from this event was included in Florida Politics and in a Florida Channel Capitol Update segment.
You've seen AANP's We Choose NPs website and commercials, heard our radio ad spots and participated for the last three years in the We Choose NPs activities at AANP's national conferences. Now, we are excited to share the newest We Choose NPs television commercial, which features Dr. Thomas and her patients. Take a minute to view this commercial focused on the NP role. Then, watch for it to air in select markets across the country.
AANP will continue to advocate for NPs. Help keep the positive momentum going by sharing AANP's posts with the #WeChooseNPs and #NPsLead hashtags, and visit the We Choose NPs website to see how AANP is helping patients connect with NPs like you.
