WASHINGTON – Doug Coleman, owner of Major Medical in Loveland, Colo., and president of the Colorado Association for Medical Equipment Services, will receive the AAHomecare/Mal Mixon Legislative Advocate Award at the Washington Legislative Conference on May 23. “Doug exemplifies the characteristics of this award, which honors AAHomecare members who inspire and motivate others to join the fight for better federal policy for the home medical equipment sector,” the association stated. “Serving as a catalyst for change at both the state and federal level for three decades, Coleman has tirelessly pursued policy change that will protect the integrity of the HME community.” Among Coleman’s accomplishments: working with AAHomecare to create the Grassroots Accountability Project, an effort to establish HME advocates to cover all 535 federal legislative offices. Coleman is the ninth recipient of the award, preceded most recently by George Kucka, president of Fairmeadows Home Health Center, in 2017.
