ATLANTA – I hope to see you at the upcoming Medtrade in Atlanta (Oct. 26-29). Medtrade is the premiere trade show for the HME community, providing unmatched educational and networking opportunities. A strong trade show is important to the overall well-being of the HME sector, so your support of Medtrade also pays dividends beyond what you get from the experience itself.
For those of you who are attending Medtrade, I urge you to attend the Stand Up for Homecare reception on Tuesday, Oct 27, from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., at the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. The event will once again be at the Chamber’s terrific rooftop event space within walking distance of the Georgia Congress Center.
When you attend or donate to Stand Up for Homecare, you are endorsing AAHomecare’s efforts to promote a positive image of the home medical equipment industry, raise public awareness of homecare’s many benefits, and support consumer advocacy groups like United Spinal Association and Paralyzed Veterans of America—organizations that serve many of our patients, and are also strong allies on many of our legislative and regulatory priorities. The campaign has also provided funding for direct outreach to consumers on our issues, and has helped expand our network of grassroots advocates by thousands of new supporters.
The Stand Up for Homecare reception brings together some of the most influential leaders in the HME community for an evening of networking, fellowship and celebration. We will also be honoring individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in their service to HME as 2015 Homecare Champions at the reception.
Register today – individual tickets are just $150.
Whether you’re an AAHomecare member or not, we hope you will consider making Stand Up for Homecare part of your Medtrade experience – and please also stop by the AAHomecare Booth (# 2210) on the show floor. Thank you for your consideration, and your commitment to our industry.
Tom Ryan is president and CEO of the American Association for Homecare.
