HFA's national teleconference, Diversity and End-of-Life Care will look at the challenges of serving a multicultural population from time of terminal diagnosis all the way through the grieving process.
Each week, we have shared a panelist's own personal journey to working with those facing the end of life. These stories were a cogent reminder about the ways that one's culture and life experiences are intricately woven into the work that we do with patients and families.
Paul C. Rosenblatt has a PhD in Psychology and is Morse-Alumni Distinguished Teaching Professor of Family Social Science at the University of Minnesota. His recent books include Two in a Bed: The Social System of Couple Bed Sharing; African American Grief (with Beverly R. Wallace); Parental Grief: Narratives of Loss and Relationship; and Help Your Marriage Survive the Death of a Child.

The teleconference allows your organization to offer an award-winning educational program to health care professionals and other caregivers in your community. In addition, you have an opportunity to present your own on-site session as part of the total teleconference program, which provides new opportunities for professional collaboration and peer support and networking. Many organizations co-host sites with other area groups to share resources, broaden audiences, and help develop a strong community network that otherwise might not exist.
