NAHC Urges Home Care and Hospice Community to Ramp Up Congressional Outreach during the August Break
Grassroots outreach efforts will help protect and improve access to home care and hospice

This week, the U.S. Senate adjourns for its annual August recess; the U.S. House adjourned last week. They are scheduled to return on September 8.

This provides increased opportunities for home care and hospice advocates to engage their members of Congress regarding pressing issues.
