The Massachusetts Association of PACE Programs (MassPACE) held its first legislative briefing on Oct. 26 at the Massachusetts State House to advocate for the eight Programs of All-Inclusive Care (PACE) in the commonwealth. Sponsored by Sen. Jamie Eldridge (D-Middlesex/Worcester), the event was an opportunity for state legislators and their aides to connect with PACE staff in their districts and learn about the valuable services that the PACE model provides to their constituents.

Attendees heard first-hand testimony from program participants and caregivers, who described the important role that PACE plays in their health care and independence.
