The Wisconsin Director of Nursing Council was deeply saddened to hear of Secretary Kitty Rhoades passing.  She has been a long-time supporter of the long-term care continuum community.  Since her time in the House of Representatives she has been a passionate advocate for healthcare, especially long-term care. 

She has accomplished big goals as Health and Human Services Secretary.  Her leadership will be greatly missed. 

I was honored to call you my friend.
