NAHC Announces New Committees Members for 2022

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) has chosen the leaders who will serve on the commmittees that will help improve NAHC governance, finances, public policy, and more. These committees will be vital to the overall strengthening of NAHC as the unifying voice of home care, home health, and hospice.

Beginning in February 2022, NAHC began selecting members on these committees, which are for one year and subject to reappointment from year to year.

Committee participation brings together members from the home care community with different backgrounds, values, viewpoints, and abilities to work collaboratively. These wide-ranging abilities result in a greater knowledge base, that results in better quality decisions. Additionally, group deliberations ensure a thorough consideration of an issue from all angles and alternative points of view prior to arriving at a decision.

NAHC thanks everyone who submitted an application to join a committee and we congratulate everyone selected to serve.

Below is a listing of our newly appointed committee members for 2022. We look forward to working together this year!
