Key Issues Affecting Home Care and Hospice Highlighted in Opening General Session for March on Washington | Private Duty Integrated Conference and Exposition

NAHC’s annual March on Washington | Private Duty Integrated Conference and Exposition got underway Sunday afternoon with a general session that highlighted the many issues that the home care and hospice community face, and why this year is so critical for the industry overall.
