2020 Spring Symposium
Compassionate Communities: Before I Die...

Every other year Hospice provides a symposium for the public on hospice-related themes. The 2020 Symposium focuses on the theme of living life fully until we die.  Borrowing from an international movement, we are using the "before I die" chalkboard motif to highlight passion for life.

Our keynote speaker for this event is Dr. Jodi Carrington from Olds Alberta.

Plenary sessions:
  • Seven Months: LPN Pat Carlson, cancer survivor
  • Living With Gratitude: Retired RN Rita Helmig whose husband died from cancer
  • Panel discussion with palliative physician Dr. Kevin Letley, Death Doula Rayne Johnson, and Bonnie Hoffman from Green Burials. 

Cost: $50
Date: June 5, 2020
Location: Camrose Norseman Inn (6505 48 Ave)
