  • Collaborate on an action plan that supports individuals and organizations who share a vision for Compassionate Communities, which will help support the Covenant Health Palliative Institute and its partners in providing world-class palliative care and advance care planning resources.
  • Support one another through conversations about what it means to live and die well, practically and emotionally.
  • Learn how to help families and communities support those with a serious illness.
