Second training in a three-part series that will train tens of thousands of health care activists in best storytelling practices to bring momentum to in-state health care advocacy in 2023
DENVER — Last night, Health Care Voices Founder and nationally-known health care advocate Laura Packard hosted the second part of a three-part online training series for health care storytellers. The series elevates Health Care Voices’ mission of training as many health care activists and storytellers as possible from now until December, in an effort to build momentum around lowering the cost of health care and set the stage to pass health care reforms in key states come 2023.

For her second training session, Laura was joined by two expert panelists to discuss how to give a compelling press interview, both from the perspectives of the interviewer and interviewee: Jennifer Taylor-Skinner, Founder and Host of The Electorette Podcast, and Brad Bauman, communications specialist and Partner at Fireside Campaigns. Together, the panelists provided the audience with a behind-the-scenes glimpse at how interviewers and interviewees evaluate timely stories, assemble a compelling pitch and prepare for press interviews.
“Last night was a fantastic glimpse into the world of public relations. Thank you to Jennifer Taylor-Skinner and Brad Bauman for sharing their expertise and media savvy strategies with our up-and-coming health care storytellers and advocates. Last night’s training will guide our next wave of advocates as they continue to shape and share their health care stories.” said Health Care Voices Founder Laura Packard. “We’re looking forward to our third and final training of this series, yet another crucial building block for advocates looking to reform state-level health care come 2023.”
