Wednesday, March 27 | 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm | d.e.c. on dragon

Working together as a united industry, we can make a large impact on the public and policymakers through the Stand up for Homecare campaign. Funds from the campaign help communicate the value of HME and raise awareness of the extraordinary contributions by suppliers in protecting patients and reducing stress on hospitals and clinicians during pandemics and beyond.

Funds raised through Stand Up for Homecare allow AAHomecare to provide support for the ITEM Coalition, a group of more than 80 patient advocacy groups that have been active and effective allies on HME legislative and regulatory issues. Contributions have also been used to help grow our capacity to mobilize grassroots outreach to Capitol Hill on legislative priorities.

Connect with your fellow HME leaders, celebrate our industry’s role in providing essential home-based care, and recharge yourself for the challenges ahead at the Stand Up for Homecare reception in Dallas! This industry hallmark is the foundation for positive change in the HME community.

The fundraising reception will be held at d.e.c. on dragon, an event venue with outdoor deck space overlooking downtown Dallas, located at 1414 Dragon St, Dallas, TX 75207.
