PCSBV Special Speaker Series Virtual Presentation with Dr. Samantha Winemaker
Date: November 9, 2022
Time: 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Location: Zoom
Cost: FREE

The Palliative Care Society of the Bow Valley welcomes Dr. Winemaker, co-host of the popular podcast The Waiting Room Revolution.

From Dr. Winemaker:
“I spent the first part of my career imagining how I could improve the illness journey for patients and families.
I imagined a world where patients and families didn’t have to ask for palliative care to achieve a ‘good death’.
I imagined a world where patients and families felt they had a roadmap for what to expect along their illness journey.
I imagined a tidal wave of patients and families demanding a different type of care.
I’d like you to imagine the same. ”

Please join us on November 9th for this important conversation!
