The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) recently announced that the Nebraska Hospice and Palliative Care Association’s Jennifer Eurek, CSW, has been appointed as the Central Plains Regional Representative for the We Honor Veterans Campaign.

The We Honor Veterans campaign is a collaboration of NHPCO and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to help improve the care Veterans receive from hospices and palliative care providers. The national campaign will provide tiered recognition to organizations that demonstrate a systematic commitment to improving care for Veterans. These “Partners” will assess their ability to serve Veterans and, using resources provided as part of the campaign, integrate best practices for providing end-of-life care to Veterans into their organization.

Eurek’s region includes North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. Her responsibilities are to provide technical assistance for hospices that are We Honor Veterans Partners, assist in developing collaborative partnerships between community hospices and VA facilities, and extend the reach of the We Honor Veterans campaign.
