If health reform regains momentum, the hospice community faces monumental changes in the current reform drafts passed by the House and Senate. While we can't expect the President's Summit to get into the details of how reform would impact end-of-life care, it is important that we understand where the political dynamics are driving the process and what the President and Congress put forth as guiding principles for the effort.
You can witness the bipartisan summit from your television or computer on Thursday, February 25 at 10 a.m. Eastern.
Just tune in to C-SPAN 3 or visit http://www.whitehouse.gov/live to watch Members of Congress and the President have a dialogue on health reform and see how the summit will influence the issue in the coming months. As you watch, share your thoughts with us on Twitter @hospiceaction. Your tweets help us shape our advocacy efforts here in Washington.
