Elizabeth Edwards to be Opening Speaker at National Hospice Conference in Dallas
Date:8/19/2008

Edwards will open NHPCO's 9th Clinical Team Conference on October 23, 2008

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Elizabeth Edwards is deeply committed to improving America's future. A strong advocate for children and an accomplished attorney, she has been a vocal advocate and tireless worker on behalf of important social causes such as increasing quality healthcare in America. Mrs. Edwards will be the opening speaker at the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization's 9th Clinical Team Conference, "New Frontiers: Expanding Quality End-of-Life Care," to be held in Dallas on October 23-25, 2008.

"Throughout my life, both personally and professionally, I have had the opportunity to see how people have been affected by illness and loss and the role the healthcare system may have played as they dealt with change in their lives. I also know that people can find a great deal of hope even in the most challenging of life's situations," remarked Edwards. "Hospice and palliative care professionals support and care for people at a time when hope can be hard to find. The professionals of NHPCO know more than I will ever know about providing that care; I know more than I wish I knew about receiving it and I am happy to share my perspective with them."

At NHPCO's 9th Clinical Team Conference, Mrs. Edwards will speak about her experiences and how she approaches change, loss and hope. This will include her experience with the healthcare system as she faced cancer and how she identifies "quality" in the healthcare arena.

Elizabeth Edwards garnered national attention when her husband was launched into the spotlight in 2004 as the Democratic Vice Presidential candidate. But it was her down-to-earth personality that charmed America.

The work hospice and palliative care professionals do to care and support people at the end of life is well known, what many people do not realize is the inspiration gained from people at all points along life's journey. Mrs. Edwards has much to share that can inform, encourage and challenge all those providing care at the end of life.

More than 2,000 hospice and palliative providers, other healthcare professionals, industry experts, vendors and supporters will gather in Dallas in October to learn from their peers and share best practices. NHPCO's annual Clinical Team Conference is one of the largest gatherings of professionals who care for people at the end of life.
