I chose to report on the retired US Representative Lois Capps RN. Capps spent 20 years as a nurse and a public health advocate for the Santa Barbara School District. During that time, she founded and served as the director of Santa Barbara Countyâ€™s Teenage Pregnancy and Parenting Project and the Parent and Child Enrichment Center. She spent 17 years as a US Representative before retiring and being honored by the American Nurses Association for her legislation and her impact on the healthcare profession.
Capps spearheaded and passed legislation to address the national nursing shortage, violence against women detection and prevention, limit under-age drinking, make accessible emergency defibrillators in public areas, initiating CPR training to schools, improve mental health services, and to expand Medicare coverage for ALS patients. What an illustrious career and a true mentor to look up to, Lois Capps RN
