March on Washington
Please join the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) on March 19-20, 2018, as leaders and advocates for home care and hospice gather in Washington, D.C., to make our voices heard in the halls of Congress. NAHC is hosting a panel discussion on current legislative issues impacting home care and hospice on Monday, March 19, and participants are encouraged to schedule individual meetings with members of Congress on Tuesday, March 20.
NAHC and advocates for home care and hospice scored a huge success with our events in 2017 and we are confident we can do it again in the coming year. The hundreds of Congressional visits made by home care and hospice advocates during March on Washington events last year were crucial to educating Senators and Representatives and convincing them to adopt common sense policies that will enable Americans to age at home with dignity. Our policy victory on the Home Health Groupings Model (HHGM) and introduction of legislation like the Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act and the Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act, would not have been possible without your personal involvement.
The only way to build on this momentum is to continue to do what works. The best advocates for our community are the hard-working people delivering invaluable services to millions of Americans in their homes every day. Your Senators and Representatives care what you think and your message is powerful.
You can protect the interests of our industry and your agency and build important relationships with lawmakers by coming to Washington, D.C., in March to advocate for home health and hospice in person. NAHC will provide you with all the information and assistance you will need to make your day of advocacy on Capitol Hill a complete success.
Please plan to join us on Monday, March 19, at 4:00pm, for a welcome reception followed by a panel discussion at the Frederick Douglass Museum (320 A Street, NE, just blocks from the Hill). Tuesday morning we’ll be back at the museum for breakfast and luggage drop off before we March on Washington.
Schedule your appointments with your Senators, Representatives and their staff on Tuesday, March 20.
There’s no cost to register, but please let us know you plan to participate.
