Wisconsin Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch to Keynote Advocacy Day Luncheon

March 16, 2018

Wisconsin’s “Jobs Ambassador,” Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, will provide the luncheon keynote address to 1,000 hospital and health care advocates at WHA’s annual Advocacy Day event March 21. The Lieutenant Governor, who is an outspoken advocate for health care in Wisconsin, will discuss the administration’s accomplishments to promote high-quality health care and ensure providers have the tools to maintain the quality care we currently have in Wisconsin.

In addition to serving as the state’s Lieutenant Governor, Kleefisch has also worked for over a year as co-chair of the Governor’s Task Force on Opioid Abuse, which includes representation from provider organizations like WHA.

Kleefisch has been recognized with a Courage in Leadership award by the Faith & Freedom Coalition and a Woman of Exceptional Courage award from the Clare Booth Luce Institute. In May 2014, the Washington Post cited her as one of 40 rising stars in American politics.
