The Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act (PCHETA) – legislation crafted by AAHPM – was reintroduced in the U.S. Senate by Senators Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) as S. 2080.

Leaders from AAHPM and HPNA came together to create a new, more inclusive hashtag for the 2020 Annual Assembly of Hospice and Palliative Care: #hapc20. Our field continues to grow and evolve and we are excited to welcome this new change. Read the blog post for more information.
