| Posted On Aug 01, 2017 | By:

Kathy Keough, Director of Government Relations, and Dr. Joel Bauman, Medical Director for VNA Care Hospice & Palliative Care, recently met with Massachusetts Congressional leaders in Washington, DC to advocate on a number of bills before Congress that affect hospice and palliative care. The visits were organized by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

Meetings were held with key health policy staff members in the offices of Senator Edward Markey along with Representatives Nikki Tsongas, Steven Lynch, William Keating and Katherine Clark.  Among the bills Ms. Keough and Dr. Bauman discussed were:

“Visits with members of our congressional delegation and their staff members are valuable to not only advocate for various bills that are of importance to the hundreds of thousands of patients that we care for, but it is also an opportunity to educate them about the vital work that is being done by Atrius Health and VNA Care Network,” said Ms. Keough.
