2013 Summit: Personal Perspectives

January 29, 9:30AM-11:30AM     Care Journey: Personal Perspectives on Advanced Care

Nearly everyone has a personal story about a loved one with an advanced illness.  Unfortunately many of these stories are about the frustrations of dealing with a health care system that doesn’t truly serve our needs.

Hear from patients and family caregivers on the spiritual, financial, and social impact of serious illness.  And take part in the dialogue with a diverse panel of experts as they discuss innovations to improve support for patients and families.
