The California Hospice and Palliative Care Association (CHAPCA) – wastewater staff are encouraged to sign up; agencies are encouraged to reach out to medical, long-term care, and hospice contacts in their service area. Not all hospice agencies are members of this association, so they may not otherwise hear about the events. The more attendees, the better!
