Be a hospice advocate from home

Categories: Policy.
Are you an advocate of hospice and palliative care? Do you want to become more involved in the legislative process? Is it easier to advocate from your home rather than come to Washington, DC? If so, then mark your calendar to join us for Virtual Hill Week, June 18-22, 2018.

Hospice Action Network is hosting a Virtual Hill Week to help you engage in the political process and strengthen our legislative priorities in Congress. During Virtual Hill Week, advocates will contact their Members of Congress via email and telephone, asking them to cosponsor legislation affecting hospice and palliative care providers, patients, and family members.

 Anyone can participate in Virtual Hill Week, and gathering friends, family, and coworkers to join you is encouraged.

To ensure that everyone feels prepared for Virtual Hill Week, NHPCO will be hosting a training webinar on Friday, June 15, from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET. The Virtual Training Webinar will be recorded and posted on the HAN website if you cannot attend in person. Register for the free Webinar.

During the Webinar, NHPCO’s Vice President of Public Policy, Sharon Pearce, and other members of the Hospice Action Network team will get you caught up on the state of our legislative priorities, specifically focusing on the Rural Access to Hospice Act, and what you can do to help us pass this important bill and improve access to hospice in underserved communities. Following the policy overview, there will be a Q&A so feel free to ask any lingering questions you may have.

To be sure you get updated information, please visit the HAN website and register with us on the Legislative Action Center. This is the best way for anyone interested in hospice and palliative care advocacy efforts to stay informed.

The Health Policy team at HAN and NHPCO hope that you will join us for Virtual Hill Week. Please reach out to the HAN team at info@nhpcohan.org with any questions.
