We'd love to get as many NPs as possible to email. As background, the article referenced S. 243, a bill inclusive of primary care providers, as specifically pertinant to physicians and pharmacists while omitting reference to NPs:

Please use the following language or compose your own email:

Thank you for your March 30th article in VT Digger about the VT Senate passage of S. 243. This is an important topic for Vermonters to know about. I am very disappointed however, that you identified physicians and pharmacists as central to the bill. The language throughout the bill is primary care providers. This includes Nurse Practitioners who are a critical part of the Primary Care system in Vermont. It is a disservice to Vermonters to not include them in your article. I hope that you will correct this future articles.

Just sent Elizabeth Hewitt an email from my personal email using the language you provided above.

Hoping she gets the message and we see more inclusive language in the future, as well as VT Digger as a whole!

Thanks for bringing this to our attention!!!
