Each person’s experience with a life limiting illness is unique with many nuances. Compassion and hope are powerful sources of strength, therefore fostering these during a vulnerable time is vital. Join the Palliative Institute in sharing your clinical and research insights by growing a conversation that extends compassion with each other, as well as the people experiencing a life limiting illness.

We are thrilled to announce plenary speakers Dr. Harvey Chochinov and Maxxine Rattner, PhD, RSW.
