Today is Hill Day 2012, and we’re asking Congress to HELP Hospice! In Washington, D.C. today, hospice advocates from around the country are meeting members of Congress to educate them on the challenges faced by community hospice organizations. Specifically, they are addressing the HELP Hospice bill. Even though you may not be in Washington, D.C., you can significantly add to the impact of this national effort by participating.
There are many ways to engage your political representatives and encourage policies that sustain and enhance access to hospice care.
- Contact your U.S. Representative and/or State legislators. Tell them you support the HELP Hospice Bill, and they should too.
- Write a letter in support of the HELP Hospice Bill to the editor of your local paper.
- Tell a friend.
