Hospice Action Network Advocacy Intensive – Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill
Advocacy is not a once-a-year event and it’s important to reinforce our message throughout the year. We invite you to send members of your IDT to the premier advocacy event for the hospice and palliative care community. Held annually in Washington, DC, the Advocacy Intensive brings together hospice caregivers, leaders, policymakers, and Members of Congress to effect positive change for end-of-life issues. During the two-day event, attendees learn best practices for advocating for hospice and how to connect directly with their members of Congress on Capitol Hill and back in their home districts.
