Past Symposiums

Event Review from 2017

3rd Annual Pediatric Palliative Care Symposium | September 28 and 29, 2017

Woven Together: Care-Giving and Care-Receiving:
The Crossroads of Caring for Another and Caring for Self

Living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition requires a wide circle of careers. It is not enough to empower and support a child with such a condition, siblings, parents, and even the family. Optimizing care and hope also requires attention to volunteer and professionals that are a part of the circles of care. If any “care-giver” is compromised in their well-being or ability to provide their best, the care of a person living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition can be adversely affected.

"There are no words that will truly express my heartfelt thanks for an incredible symposium!! So many perspectives on resiliency and self care! We truly can learn from each other, integrate the tools we learned at  home personally, professionally and educate those we work with!! An incredible line up of passionate leaders in this sometimes, very difficult field, where demands take a toll and resiliency isn't easy to find. Thank You again for 2 incredible days!! Looking forward to next year's conference!!!" - 2017 Attendee
