Policy Symposium: Conversations Before the Crisis

NHPCO and Hospice Action Network will host a Policy Symposium, "Conversations Before the Crisis: The Intersection of Family, Faith and Policy," on Tuesday, April 23, 2013.

What role does federal policy play in advance care planning? What opportunities are there for congress to act on the issue? What obstacles stand in their way? NHPCO is proud to announce that several members of congress will join Conversations Before the Crisis to tackle these issues.

Senator John Isakson, GA
Senator Ron Wyden, OR
Congressman Phil Roe, TN
About Conversations Before the Crisis:
Communities, families and individuals need to have access to the proper tools in order to have conversations about care needs, wishes and values earlier and throughout the course of a lifetime. The time for a robust and open dialogue by policymakers, care providers, hospice experts, opinion shapers, journalists and religious/spiritual leaders has come. There is no better time than now to start these conversations.
Learn more on the HAN website. The event is offered free-of-charge.
