Who Should Attend?

If you’re eager to learn more about the national policy decisions impacting your business and patients and are ready to play your part in the political process, the AAHomecare Washington Legislative Conference is for you! We encourage every member of the HME community to come to DC, make connections with your legislators and share your story. Help us make HME issues stand apart from the tremendous number of messages Congress receives each day. Together we can cut through the clutter in Washington, speak with one voice, and build on the relationships we have in the Senate and House. 

Suggested Attire for the Conference:

We are encouraging attendees to wear purple on Wednesday, May 22 in honor of an HME champion. Our dear friend Karyn Estrella, president and CEO of the Home Medical Equipment and Services Association of New England, is battling pancreatic cancer. She will not be able to attend the Washington Legislative Conference for the first time in many years. We will take a group picture to show our support for her. You can stay up-to-date on Karyn's journey by visiting her CaringBridge blog.
