Palliative Care: A Call to ActionLast year, “office hours”—the chance to meet face-to-face with experts in the fields of palliative medicine and end-of-life care—was voted one of the most helpful components of the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California Annual Summit.

That’s why I’m excited to announce we just posted all confirmed office hours for the Summit in 2015!
