Stand Up for Homecare

Thanks to the leaders who helped make Stand Up for Homecare a success!  This Spring's event raised more than $30,000 to engage HME patient groups who are important allies on many of our legislative and advocacy priorities, and also provides resources for additional media relations, grassroots, and outreach efforts in support of our public policy goals.

Thank you to the people and organizations who Stand Up for Homecare!
