On This Episode:

As the fight for the future of anesthesia continues, having a seat at the table to discuss the issues becomes more and more important. That’s why we’re excited to feature another guest who’s been in the arena. Sharon and guest host Tracy Castleman, DNP, CRNA, APN-A, FAANA had the opportunity to sit down with Lee Bias, a CRNA with an eye on political office, to talk about the critical role political engagement plays in the anesthesia profession. Discover how Lee’s journey into the political arena underscores the importance of advocacy, highlighting the significant influence politics has on our ability to deliver top-notch anesthesia care, particularly in rural communities.

This is a special episode because Lee was one of three nurse anesthetists running for office in their respective states years ago along with Sharon and Deb Barber. Join us as we unpack the essentials of effective campaigning and the power of grassroots efforts in shaping political outcomes. We share insights into the potency of every dollar and every volunteer hour, from sign assembly to door knocking. The goal is to help you learn about the support structures in place that bolster our political voice and why it’s vital to engage proactively in the political landscape.

 

Here’s some of what we discuss in this episode:

  • The importance of being proactive as a CRNA and how you can do that close to your home.
  • There are so many more ways to support a campaign beyond giving money.
  • Why Lee believes that everything falls into three categories and that’s how you should determine how to direct your energy.
  • The role PACs play during the campaign process.

The fact of the matter is, politics matter to everybody. It’s not a matter of if it does or if it does not. It’s how it matters it.

– Lee Bias, CRNA

I started listening to this podcast religiously early on in my CRNA journey, a year before applying to CRNA school. The content in this podcast was one of my most helpful resources for getting into my first choice school, Wake Forest! It has also been a huge motivator for getting involved with the AANA now and throughout my career. I highly recommend this podcast to every prospective CRNA I meet.
