“Serious Illness Care: Advances and Opportunities”
You’d expect to hear about innovation and creativity in the tech world or arts world, but in regards to end-of-life care?
The truth is, how we care for people with serious illness has evolved rapidly in recent years. New technologies, new approaches, high tech (and high touch) advances are driving a revolution in improving quality of life and end of life.
The 21st Annual Friedman Lecture & Awards will highlight the work of health care innovators and their efforts to revolutionize care at the culmination of life. Join us on April 13, 2022 to hear from keynote speaker Patrick White, MD, of BJC Hospice and a panel of BJC and Washington University experts in the field of aging. The panel will be moderated by Brian Carpenter, PhD, and feature Karla Washington, PhD; Devin Odom, MD; Nathan Moore, MD; and Keisha White, MD.
This event will take place in the Eric P. Newman Education Center (EPNEC) auditorium on the Washington University School of Medicine campus. Attendees will be expected to follow WashU’s public health requirements and any other guidelines deemed necessary.
This event is free and open to all. Due to limited seating, registration is required for entry.
