Nurse Talk’s Healthcare in America Senior Correspondent Donna Smith had the privilege of talking with Jane O’Meara Sanders recently.

Jane played a major role in Bernie‚Äôs 2016 Presidential run and worked closely with thousands of nurses during the campaign. She learned first-hand how nurses fight for their patients both at the bedside and beyond. Jane is busy working on Bernie’s 2020 Presidential bid and is focusing her efforts on quality of life issues

    I am a nurse in Charlottesville Virginia, a member of NNU and an avid Bernie campaigner since May of 2015.
    Jane, thank you for keeping Bernie healthy and safe. You are a patriot.
    I have followed Bernie daily for 4 years and, indeed, we will not see another Bernie in our lifetime.
    My first husband, Bernie Leipelt, was born in Silesia in 1921 and he had the one-minded-focused characteristic similar to your Bernie. He too, was a fighter for social change and founded several organization to bring about racial harmony.

    Be well, Jane.
