We are happy to report that one of our members, Regina Gillispie of Best Home Medical in West Virginia, has been appointed to the National Small Business Administration’s Health and Human Resource Issue Committee. This will provide Regina, a politically active DME provider, a seat at the table to expand partnerships and grow the network of business owners of other industries, broadening the interest of DME issues.
As one of the four primary NSBA Issue Committees, the Health and Human Resources Committee overseas all issues having to do with health care and employee benefits, including the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, health benefits taxation, medical malpractice, health savings accounts and more. This committee also oversees all human resources and labor issues ranging from labor union relations to the Family Medical Leave Act, retirement issues to immigration and minimum wage to unemployment insurance.
Congratulations Regina! We know you’ll do great!
