Within one hour of my post I got an email from Monica Greenfield, Coordinator of the Department of Professional Practice & Health Policy at the ACNM, AND from Nancy Brannin, a midwife who left New Mexico because of similar (maybe even identical) barriers to practice. They sent me the points of contact to send letters/emails, specifically about APNs being on staff at hospitals. All of these people sound mighty important.

Dr. Barry Straube, Director of Clinical Standards and Quality & CMS Medical Officer

Dr. Donald Berwick, CMS director

Joanna King, Director of Government Relations, ACNM

Patrick Cooney, ACNM Federal Lobbyist

Tina Johnson, Professional Practice and Health Policy Director

Not quite done with my letter yet, but it’s coming!
