Indiana Senator Todd Young and Jim Frain

The American Society for Healthcare Human Resources Administration (ASHHRA) of the American Hospital Association (AHA) is the nation's only membership organization dedicated to meeting the needs of the human resources professionals in health care.  The ASHHRA Advocacy Committee was on the Hill and presented the ASHHRA Hill Visit Position Paper focusing on Ensuring a Strong and Engaged Health Care Workforce.  The objective of the ASHHRA Advocacy Committee Hill Visit is to continue to build relationships with senators and representatives, reiterating the important health care viewpoint.  It is imperative to present our positions since their view may not include a focus on the issues unique to health care.

Jim Frain, Vice President Human Resources, met with the offices of both Indiana Senators as well as three Indiana Representatives on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 in Washington D.C.  Mr. Frain (right) is pictured with Indiana Senator Todd Young (left) in front of the Senate Chamber doors.
