NAHC Summer Backyard Advocacy
August 2021

August marks the beginning of the annual Summer congressional recess and NAHC’s Summer Backyard Advocacy Bash is back and in full force! Your elected officials will be in their local home offices, right in your own backyard for the next several weeks, and we want you to engage with them about our key legislative and regulatory priorities.

Advocacy starts at home with you, your staff, patients and families. You are first-hand experts on the issues and opportunities affecting home-based care and services and your representatives need to hear from you!

Each week NAHC will also be highlighting one activity you can take part in to make some noise with your elected officials, and ensure the home care and hospice communities have the support, protections, and resources needed during the public health emergency and beyond.

We need your Voices, Hearts, and Actions more than ever before.
