Stand Up for Homecare Registration Opens

Tickets are now available for the key networking event, to be held on March 29 during the upcoming Medtrade conference and expo.

The American Association for Homecare has opened registration for its annual Stand Up for Homecare reception, which will be held on March 29 during the upcoming Medtrade convention.

Considered a key networking event during the show, proceeds from Stand Up for Homecare support patient advocacy groups that represent a broad range of people who use HME. The groups include the ITEM Coalition, which comprises important allies on many HME public policy priorities. Last year, AAHomecare was able to give $25,000 to the ITEM Coalition and the more than 90 patient advocacy organizations they represent.

The fundraising reception runs from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the F Lobby at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center on March 29.

“This beautiful space is filled with natural light and just a short walk from the show floor,” a statement from AAHomecare noted about the reception’s new location. “Perfect for networking with old friends and new.”

Attendees can purchase tickets via this link or as an add-on to their Medtrade registration. Companies seeking sponsorship opportunities, which include a block of tickets, should email Sue Mairena at
