Karen Mercereau is a nationally recognized visionary leader in healthcare, known for her ability to transcend challenges, and create opportunity from complexity. This was the quality behind her founding of RN Patient Advocates in 2002, for which she received a Purpose Prize Fellowship. A clinical RN for 45 years in diverse intensive care as well as community health settings, Karen was also integral in developing the first hospice in Tucson, AZ. Recognizing the dearth of public health programs available in the AIDS community in the late 1980’s, she chaired a countywide consortium to develop AIDs relief programs in Tampa Bay. Karen has also been instrumental in the design and implementation of hospital and health care systems, lecturing nationally on their wider applications. Currently, Karen heads the RN Patient Advocate Learning Intensive in association with the University of Arizona College of Nursing. This immersion learning program for qualified clinical RNs prepares them for the development of their own practices as independent RN Patient Advocates (iRNPAs).
Karen is also the leader of the RN Patient Advocate Group Practice in Southern Arizona comprised of independent RN Patient Advocates who provide both individual RN Patient Advocate services as well as community health literacy programs. She is the President of Health Education and Advocacy Leaders, Inc., a foundation she started to support community health literacy programs.
Fran Mott has been the Chapter Leader in Michigan for the VHL Family Alliance since 1994. What that means is that she is in charge of taking care of people with von Hippel-Lindau throughout Michigan.
Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) is a genetic cancer syndrome, caused by one tiny misspelling in one gene, the VHL gene. People who carry this alteration are at increased risk of having one or more tumors in a variety of places in the body. There is currently no magical cure, it's all about watching out for issues, finding them early, and getting the right treatment at the right time.
Fran has worked with physicians at University of Michigan Medical Center and other hospitals throughout the state to become more aware of VHL, diagnose it earlier and more accurately, and help people manage their health. The University of Michigan has created a Clinical Care Center for VHL, part of the CCC program of the VHL Alliance.
Fran is retiring this year after nearly 20 years of volunteer service to her neighbors throughout the state. Joyce speaks with Fran about her experience as a patient herself, a mother, and a volunteer in service to others with this rare disease.
The VHL Alliance will hold its Annual Meeting September 21, 2013, in Ann Arbor, with a dinner September 20 honoring Fran and Dr. James Montie of the U of M.
