Can’t Make it to the Advocacy Intensive?

Believe it or not, the Advocacy Intensive starts today! If you couldn’t make it to the Intensive this year but are still hoping to advocate, do I have a solution for you. From the comfort of your very own home or office, even YOU can be an effective hospice and palliative care advocate. How? With the power of your words and a telephone.

So, fire up those telephones, folks, it’s time to give Congress a call to tell them about the importance of hospice and palliative care! First, review our suggested script, and then log into our Call Module to make your calls to Congress! Then, please share these resources with your friends to help make Virtual Hill Week 2017 a grand success!

Additionally, we are going to stream parts of the 2017 Advocacy Intensive on Facebook Live today! Have you met NHPCO’s new CEO, Edo Banach? Hear his opening remarks at 9:45 am EDT on HAN’s Facebook Page. Then, tune in again at 3:00 pm EDT to learn about how you can use social media to contact your Members of Congress.

Finally, we have several resources to help you continue to advocate at home! Check out our video collection to learn how to be an effective advocate without ever having to leave your state!

If you run into a roadblock or need further support, don’t be afraid to shoot us an e-mail or give us a call at or (703) 837-3142.

Thank you for your support!
