2021 Virtual Legislative Forum

Policy decisions made at the State Capitol and throughout Wisconsin government can have a significant impact on the hospice and palliative care industry, the professionals that work in the field, and the patients and families they serve. That’s why it’s increasingly important for WiHPCA members to engage in the policymaking process at the state level. But the first step in raising our profile and increasing our influence under the Capitol dome is educating members on the importance of advocacy and building relationships with key policymakers.

With that on mind, we strongly encourage you to REGISTER for the FREE Wisconsin Hospice and Palliative Care Association Virtual Legislative Forum, which will provide participants with effective grassroots advocacy training, help them understand how they can make a difference in the legislative process, and allow them to hear from key state lawmakers and Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) officials. They will also have an opportunity to engage with invited policymakers and discuss issues that affect Wisconsin’s hospice and palliative care industry.

Participating state officials include newly appointed WI DHS Deputy Secretary Debra Standridge and State Representative Amy Loudenbeck (R-Clinton), Co-Chair of the Legislature’s powerful Joint Finance Committee.
