10th Annual Hospice Savannah Lecture Series

Each year we fulfill our mission of providing the best services and resources on living with a life-limiting illness, dying, death, grief and loss, by inviting experts to Savannah to speak to the medical and non-medical community.

In 2018 we welcome physician, writer and patients’ rights advocate Dr. Angelo Volandes, who will speak on “The Conversation: A Revolutionary Plan for End-of-Life Care.” Dr. Volandes practices internal medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and is on faculty at Harvard Medical School. He is Co-Founder and President of the non-profit foundation Advance Care Planning (ACP) Decisions. Join us as he explains his low-tech, high-empathy plan to revolutionize end-of-life care at  one or more of the following events:
