Executive Director Pat Kelleher and Director of Legislative & Public Affairs James Fuccione traveled to Washington DC in late March for the National Association for Home Care & Hospice’s annual conference. Along with several agency members, the Alliance held a briefing for Congressional staff on proposed cuts to home health in the President’s budget and also met with Congressman James P. McGovern.
McGovern continues to be a champion for home health and the Alliance is assisting his office in fighting the proposed reductions. The Congressman was also featured on the cover of Caring Magazine and has circulated a letter among his colleagues announcing the reconvening of the House’s Home Health Working Group.
For more details on this lobbying effort, see our press release and for more on the Congressman and Alliance’s advocacy work, please contact us or visit our Advocacy Center.
