UPDATE ON MARCH ON WASHINGTON
In response to requests from our members and a number of congressional offices due to risks associated with the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, the National Association for Home Care & Hospice is shifting our annual March on Washington exclusively to a virtual advocacy campaign. This will be an excellent opportunity to continue to build an army of digital advocates around the country. Together, our emails, phone calls, and social media action will send a clear message to our elected representatives in Washington that home care and hospice is a force to be reckoned with and policies should be crafted with the goal of enabling the disabled and elderly to age with dignity in their own homes and communities. We will also have a great opportunity to communicate how care in the home fits as a primary care source in dealing with the virus. Watch this short video from NAHC President William Dombi.
