Palmetto Health to Host Hospice Foundation of America’s
Annual National Living With Grief® Program
Palmetto Health Hospice will host a free telecast of the 21st Annual National Living With Grief® Program on Thursday, April 10, and Thursday, April 17, 2-5 p.m. This year’s program focuses on “Helping Adolescents Cope with Loss.” The program provides an opportunity for a wide variety of professionals—including doctors, nurses, funeral directors, psychologists, educators, social workers and bereavement counselors—to share and exchange ideas and obtain continuing education credits. The telecast will be broadcast at the following Palmetto Health locations:
• Live and interactive session:
Thursday, April 10, at the Palmetto Health Baptist Auditorium, 1501 Sumter St.
• Webinar session:
Thursday, April 17, at the Palmetto Health Richland Auditorium, 5 Medical Park Dr.
Moderated by Frank Sesno, director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University, the program will explore the ways that health care workers, hospices, educators, social workers, counselors, clergy, funeral directors and other professionals can assist adolescents as they cope with loss.
Each year this award-winning broadcast is seen in more than 2,000 communities across North America, reaching an estimated live audience of 125,000 people. The program is produced by Hospice Foundation of America, a not-for-profit organization, which acts as an advocate for the hospice concept of care through ongoing programs of professional education, public information and research on issues relating to illness, loss, grief and bereavement.
The teleconference is offered free of charge and is made possible by community contributions to Palmetto Health Hospice. Palmetto Health Hospice provides care to terminal patients and their families in 13 counties across the state including Aiken, Calhoun, Chester, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lancaster, Laurens, Lexington, Newberry, Richland, Saluda, Sumter and Union.
