Elizabeth Edwards Presented With Person of the Year Award by National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization at National Conference
Date:5/7/2009

eople -- is one shared by hospice and palliative care providers.

A poignant moment came at the conclusion of her plenary address when she said she knew that one day she would need hospice care as a patient, and she thanked the attendees and all hospice professionals who care so compassionately for patients and families at the end of life.

She received a standing ovation and then graciously spent the next two hours signing autographs and copies of her book, Saving Graces: Finding Solace and Strength from Friends and Strangers.

Edwards served as the Honorary Chair of the National Hospice Foundation gala held the following Friday evening, which was attended by 600 guests. NHF's annual gala is a philanthropic event supporting efforts to expand and improve care at the end of life.

As attention turns to the release of her new book and her publicized appearance on Oprah, NHPCO salutes Edwards for her efforts to advance care and compassion.
