Hospice and Palliative Care in Prince George’s County: A Free Community Roundtable
November 9 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
There are many myths and misunderstandings surrounding hospice and palliative care. Everyone in the community can gain insight and get answers from the experts about these essential services when Hospice of the Chesapeake hosts a community roundtable, “Hospice and Palliative Care in Prince George’s County,” from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 9 in the Student Center at Bowie State University, 1400 Jericho Park Road, Bowie, Maryland.
The panel will include multiple Hospice of the Chesapeake experts including Chief Medical Officer Dr. Marny Fetzer and will be moderated by Director of Nursing and Clinical Advocacy Rachel Sherman, DNP, FNP-BC. Also joining the panel will be Dr. Alvin Reaves III with U.S. Acute Care Solutions; Jacqueline Hill, PhD, RN, CNE of Bowie State University; Prince George’s County District 9 Council Member Sydney Harrison; Maryland State Senator Michael Jackson; and Chaplain Robin Walker, MDiv., BCC, of the University of Maryland Capital Region Medical Center.
Sherman is looking forward to facilitating this discussion about a topic that she is passionate about in the county she calls home. “I have advocated for health equity in Prince George’s County for my entire professional life,” she said. “Being in a leadership position with a respected organization known for its hometown roots offers more opportunities to help educate the community about the importance and availability of advanced illness and end-of-life care for themselves and their families.”
The community roundtable is open to the community and free to attend, but as seating is limited, people are asked to reserve a space at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/prince-georges-county-community-roundtable-discussion-tickets-732217200357.
