About the Ambassadors Program

The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) and the Hospice Action Network created the My Hospice Ambassadors Program to educate, train, and empower hospice and palliative care professionals and volunteers to engage with federal lawmakers and enhance awareness of hospice and palliative care issues and legislation.

Ambassadors will establish and maintain significant and continuous relationships with Members of Congress, host roundtable events with federal lawmakers to advance hospice and palliative care legislation and develop a network of hospice and palliative care advocates to support the My Hospice Campaign.

How Can I Become an Ambassador?

To be eligible for an Ambassadorship, individuals must be employed by or volunteer with a NHPCO Member organization.

This is a small but growing program, and NHPCO will only consider applicants who are located in strategic Congressional target states/districts.
