Relieving Pressures/Enhancing Supports: Basic Needs and Communities of Care

Living with complex, life-threatening conditions requires holistic attention and responses. Like a teeter-totter or mobile, there is always a tension in balancing the emotional, financial, spiritual and daily pressures, medical care and other needs.

At this year's Symposium, families, volunteers, and a wide range of practitioners will address the continuum of care necessary for families caring for a child with a life-threatening condition.

Led by facilitator, Ted Bowman

*No cost to attend; Continuing education credits will be available (more information coming soon)
