(Pueblo, Colo.) – On Wednesday, April 25, 2016, representatives from Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care joined more than 260 hospice and palliative care advocates representing the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) – the oldest and largest nonprofit membership organization representing hospice and palliative care programs and professionals in the United States – on Capitol Hill as part of the Hospice Action Network’s annual Advocacy Intensive. Attendees from 44 states across the country spoke with 300 lawmaker offices about legislation supported by NHPCO to improve the delivery of hospice and palliative care.

“It’s incredibly impactful when members of Congress hear from frontline hospice professionals,” said Tarrah Lowry-Schreiner, president and CEO, Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care. “It was an honor to meet with Congressman Scott Tipton and Sen. Cory Gardner and Sen. Michael Bennet’s staff to reinforce the value of the Medicare Hospice Benefit and advocate for the nearly 800,000 beneficiaries across Colorado it serves annually and their families.”
