Attendees of the March on Washington | Private Duty Integrated Conference and Exposition were able to enjoy authentic Texas BBQ and mingle with fellow advocates and Hill staff at a briefing and reception held at the historic Frederick Douglass Museum and cosponsored by the Texas State Association.
The event offered attendees a real taste of Texas with BBQ brisket, mac and cheese, Blue Belle ice cream and Shiner Bock beer. Many March on Washington | Private Duty attendees, Capitol Hill staff, and members of NAHC’s leadership attended the reception.
Surrounded by pictures of Caring Institute Award winners and personal items once owned by Frederick Douglass, attendees were reminded of the difference one person can make in the course of history – a message even more poignant given a day of advocacy and lobbying lawmakers on behalf of ensuring access to home care and hospice continues.
