Washington, D.C., December 12, 2017: 

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) is looking for volunteers to help create the best education curriculum in home health and hospice for our annual Conference in 2018.

Did you come to the Home Health and Hospice Conference & Expo in Long Beach, California last October?  If you did, you probably noticed NAHC made some pretty significant changes in the education curriculum. Briefly, we reduced the number of overall classes to make attendance more manageable and we focused more on the topics members told us they wanted to see. We did all this based on recommendations made to  us by NAHC members, volunteers who wanted to help us ensure our education content remains the best in the industry.

Did you like the changes, or not?  We need your help to make our annual conference even better in 2018.  NAHC needs educational committee volunteers to tell us what you want and need to learn, shaping the content of education sessions for our October 7-9, 2018 conference in Grapevine, TX at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center.

Your input, whether it’s executive, administrative, clinical, and/or other “boots-on-the-ground” caregiving provider perspectives, tells us what courses to produce for YOU.  We need broad geographic representation, voices from both small and large corporate agencies, and consultant viewpoints that can help point to popular areas of concern.

The commitment entails two or three one-hour phone calls in January 2018.  If you’re interested in participating, please reply to Katharine Howard ( or Cheryl Lee (

If you prefer not to participate, you can still contribute ideas and priorities through this four-question survey or on Twitter via @NAHC_Education.

This is your NAHC. This is your conference.  This is your opportunity to tell us what you want.
