NHPCO and its affiliate organization, the Hospice Action Network, are asking citizens to urge Congress to support access to hospice care and quality end-of-life care for all Americans!
Please set aside a few minutes this week to ask Members of Congress to cosponsor the Rural Access to Hospice Act (PDF). The Rural Access to Hospice Act would help millions of rural Americans retain their attending physician when transitioning to hospice care. Please contact Congress today and make sure your voice is heard on Capitol Hill.
Hospice Action Network has created a Virtual Hill Week website and online advocacy module that makes it simple to ensure your elected officials know of your support for quality end-of-life care. The advocacy module offers a series of communication options, including submitting an email, making a phone call, and posting on social media. NHPCO and HAN urge you to consider completing all options!
Do your part this week to advocate on behalf of patients facing serious illness and the end of life. If you have any questions, feel free to email the HAN Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
