On November 12, 2021, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine appointed The Patient’s Podium’s Founder, Executive Director, and Board-Certified Patient Advocate Nichole Davis to the position of Council Member to the Ohio Statewide Independent Living Council (Ohio SILC).
Per the Governor's Office Press Release, Davis will serve during the 2021-2024 term.
The purpose of Ohio SILC is to "engage in advocacy efforts that
