HFA Staff and Consultants, Sharing their Expertise

HFA staff members and consultants are often invited by other groups to share their experience and expertise.

HFA's senior bereavement consultant, Ken Doka PhD, MDiv, will serve as a guest faculty member at the 15th Annual Interdisciplinary Conference on Supportive Care, Hospice and Palliative Medicine, sponsored by the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, this November 18-19.

Phil Carpenter, HFA Bereavement Specialist, will be serving on two panels in the next few months. He'll be part of a panel on the topic of Shared Voices: Mourning through the Lens of Various Faith Traditions at Sibley Memorial Hospital in October, and also a presenter at the Carlos F. Gomez Quality of Life for the Children Conference on pediatric palliative care in November.

Karyn Walsh, LCSW, HFA Social Worker, will be serving on the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Patient Services Committee for their National Office. The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS aims to give all people with blood cancer--at every stage of their journey--access to the information and services they need to fight and manage their disease.

If your organization is ever in need of a speaker or panelist, please contact HFA to see how we can help.
