Home Care Goes to Washington: Make Your Voice Heard

Join NAHC in Washington and Make Your Voice Heard
March 20 & 21, 2017 for the March on Washington

With a new president and a new administration, all eyes are focused on Washington, D.C. Every year, home care and hospice leaders and supporters from across the country join with the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) for a day of lobbying and meetings with senators and representatives on Capitol Hill.

Why should you participate? The voices of constituents can have an amazing influence on elected officials so it’s crucial for home care and hospice professionals from across the country to add their voices to NAHC’s advocacy efforts.

This year’s March on Washington is one of three fly-in dates planned (including June and September). The new program is focused on a Washington Policy panel discussion to discuss issues and new regulations, as well as a full day of lobbying. NAHC will have policy papers available online soon, as well as offer assistance with scheduling meetings with your elected officials. Plus, in early March, NAHC will host an online panel discussion of the big issues facing home care and hospice in the coming year.

We hope you’ll join us and other home care and hospice advocates on March 20 & 21. Our hope is to have representation from every state to meet with every senator and representative.

If you plan to participate, we ask you to arrive by Monday, March 20, at 4:00pm at the Frederick Douglass Museum (320 A Street, NE, just blocks from the Hill), for a networking reception and the Washington panel discussion. Tuesday morning we’ll be back at the museum for breakfast and a rally to kick off our day before we March on Washington.

There’s no fee to register but we do ask that you let us know you’re coming. Click here to register for free.
