Honoring Kitty Rhoades
Secretary of the Department of Health Services
It is with great respect and honor that the Board on Aging and Long Term Care recognizes Kitty Rhoades, Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, on her recent passing. Her outstanding leadership and commitment to Wisconsin’s long term care consumers was very significant. She especially focused on Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease and making sure that Wisconsin had good long term care policies in place for our most vulnerable citizens. The Members of the Board on Aging and Long Term Care held Secretary Rhoades in high regard and were very appreciative of the support she gave to this agency through the years.
Secretary Rhoades’ strong leadership and willingness to work with us all will be missed in the Long Term Care arena. The Board on Aging and Long Term has been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to know and work with her for many years and we will always be grateful for the support she gave to this agency!
