“Work with Yvonne Bokhour for 30 seconds and you'll realize she has attributes that are absolutely essential to healthcare advocacy and communications:
(1) intelligence and expertise to truly understand the industry and its stakeholders;
(2) exceptional research and writing skills to uncover the full scope of complex issues and conditions, analyze, and translate them into material that is accessible and functional for a variety of audiences; and
(3) compassion and empathy for those navigating the system and working to make it better.
Luckily, I have had a chance to work with Yvonne much longer than 30 seconds, and know that her joyful personality makes collaboration fun, too. She has my full recommendation.”
