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.

During our celebratory 40th year, Hospice Savannah welcomed Monsignor Renzo Pegoraro, physician, author, bioethicist and Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy for Life at The Vatican. He was joined by Dr. Kathleen Deloach Benton, Director of Palliative Care and Medical Ethics with St. Joseph’s/Candler. Their topic was “The Art of Living and the Art of Dying: Dignity at End of Life.”

Watch an edited 35-minute version here.
