Palliative Care & Hospice Education and Training Act
(PCHETA, HR 1676 & S. 693)
On June 20, 2018 the Coalition participated in the Patient Quality of Life Coalition's 5th annual Lobby Day in Washington, DC.
23 participating organizations, from 30 states, with 80 advocates, 104 hill meetings, resulted in 285 bipartisan co-sponsors in the House
Supportive Care Coalition Board members Lois Lane, Sarah Hill, Darren Henson, Bob Bergamini, and Gregg VandeKieft visited multiple house and senate offices seeking additional co-sponsorships for the bill.
As a result the PCHETA bill passed in the House on July 23, 2018!
PCHETA is now in the Senate awaiting review and vote
