Hospital Educator and Academic Liaison Association

A new website is currently under development for the Hospital Educator and Academic Liaison Association. 

We are working to combine membership databases to reflect accurate renewal dates. If you are looking to renew your membership prior to the launch of the new site, please contact us at 

The Legislative Committee identifies the educational needs for patients with hematologic and oncologic diagnoses, raises awareness of the issues, and, when necessary seeks policy reform to improve the educational outcomes for these patients.  This is achieved by:

  • Identification of common educational needs and legislative policy issues as they pertain to the APHOES mission
  • Development of a national alliance infrastructure to support initiatives
  • Recruitment of professionals and organizations to join the alliance that represent other disease groups
  • Identification of legislative champions and solicit their support
  • Implementation of regional and national events to raise awareness and seek reform

Legislative Committee Co-Chairs:

Karen DeMairo, BA, MHSA

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Long Island, Hauppauge, NY


Megan Elam, EdD

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH
