During the Blogalicious Tech Summit that was held on April 18, 2013, at the Microsoft Innovation and Policy Center in Washington, D.C., Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico discussed the importance of making sure women caregivers have the resources they need to provide the best care possible to their loved ones. Congresswoman Grisham personalized her comments when she shared several stories about serving as her mother’s primary caregiver. Her stories reminded me of how important it is to provide women caregivers with online resources and tools they can use to support their self-care and loved ones.
