Help build momentum for PCHETA. The Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act passed the House last Congress, and AAHPM is working to re-engage lawmakers to maintain bipartisan support and advance the bill. AAHPM’s Legislative Action Center makes it easy to contact your Representative and ask them to cosponsor H.R. 647. (Suggested messaging generated by status of legislator’s support.)
The new application for the Circle of Life Award is now available. The Award celebrates innovation in palliative and end-of-life care, with a goal of shining a light on programs and organizations which serve as models or inspiration for other providers. Consider nominating your organization or program. Applications are due August 16.
