Member News and Notes Texas Hospice Promotes Mount Sinai’s New Research—Texas Style! Texas Hospice, based in Fort Worth, TX, shared news about the latest research out of Mount Sinai’s Icahn School of Medicine in a very unusual way— on a very big billboard! In fact, Stein Hospice in Somerset, NJ was so impressed, the staff shared the great photo, along with information about the new research, on the Stein Hospice blog. Kudos to the provider-members that are helping NHPCO—and the entire hospice community—spread the word on this new research. (See this month’s cover story and Don’s monthly message to learn more about this research and how NHPCO and the Hospice Action Network are doing it justice on the Hill!)
