2023 Policy Summit & Advocacy Day
It's Time to ELEVATE Home Care!

Join PHA on May 1-2, 2023, in Harrisburg for two days of education and advocacy.

New for this year, PHA will host a Policy Summit on Monday, May 1 at the Hilton Harrisburg. This one-day event will feature panels and discussions with policymakers, workforce thought leaders, and advocacy experts. Following the Summit, attendees are invited to join us for cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres with state legislators.

On Tuesday, May 2, we’ll head to the Capitol for this year’s Advocacy Day. Join us at the Hilton for a kick-off rally before hitting the halls of the Capitol to meet with legislators. After your legislative meetings, plan to participate in our press event in the main capitol rotunda.

We hope you’ll join us on both days!
