Lunch and learn series (registration required)
Listen to a local expert share their knowledge and enjoy lunch on us with time to socialize!
Family, Psychosocial Issues, and Impact of Illness with Lana Richardson, retired Social Worker
Lana brings with her much expertise from her time in the field as a social worker, seeing the impact of illness on individuals as well as family dynamics. In addition, she has a wealth of experience from volunteering for over 30 years with the NNPCN. She gives her time to both our Palliative Care clients and our Bereavement program. Lana will discuss how clients and families are affected by illness and how we can best support them.
About the BEYOND DYING series:
Palliative care goes beyond comfort while dying. Knowing more about this multi-faceted topic helps us care for our loved ones, deal with changes in our own health, and serve our community through organizations like the Near North Palliative Care Network. Please join us for this excellent learning opportunity!
Offered every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, this lunch-and-learn series is open to everyone, though geared towards seniors and those who work in palliative care (professional or volunteer). Presentations start at 11 a.m. followed by Q&A, lunch and social time.
