2015 AHCA/NCAL Congressional Briefing Next Week

Matthew Smyth

Next week over four hundred members will bring their voice to the Hill and be heard. Congressional Briefing provides an important chance to talk face-to-face with your Members of Congress about the issues that matter most to you. The two day event will be attended by members from all fifty states and the District of Columbia, who have set up over 250 meetings with members of Congress to discuss critical issues facing skilled nursing and assisted living centers.

This year’s keynote speaker is the anchor of Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace. Wallace has an extensive career in the broadcasting industry for forty years and has won every major broadcast news award for his reporting, including three Emmy Awards. Members will also hear the latest about all that is happening on the Hill, and network with peers. Attendees will hear important updates from members of Congress including Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Representative James E Clyburn (D-SC), as well as Senator John Hoeven (R-ND), Representative Jackie Walorski (R-IN) and Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI).

The event also features this year's Joe Warner Patient Advocacy Award winners, who will be recognized for their tireless efforts in their communities and Washington, D.C. as advocates of the long term and post-acute care profession. Robin Hillier, Barry Lazarus, and Bob Van Dyk will be honored this year. There will also be a special awards ceremony with Congressional Leaders recognizing the strong advocates their work does advancing for important causes for the long term care profession.
