More than 125,000 people in 2,000 communities attend this annual educational program, which has been instrumental in educating health care professionals and families on issues affecting end-of-life care. This year's program offers a distinguished panel of practitioners, educators, and hospice experts who will examine how diversity influences end-of-life decision making, including how hospices are reaching out to diverse groups and incorporating traditional practices and alternative therapies. The panel will also discuss the impact that culture may have at the time of death and during bereavement, and the challenges that may occur when cultural considerations may cause ethical concerns or moral distress. The program hopes to increase participants' sensitivity by helping them acknowledge how their own cultural values and assumptions influence the delivery of care.

Hospice By The Bay, which serves Marin, San Francisco, Northern San Mateo, and Sonoma counties, is dedicated to providing the highest quality of end-of-life care to patients and their families regardless of their ability to pay. Hospice By The Bay also serves people whose lives have been affected by the loss of a loved one through its community grief support program.

Hospice By The Bay is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has been serving the Bay Area since 1975. Hospice By The Bay programs are funded through health care reimbursement and financial and in-kind donations from community members and businesses. For more information about Hospice By The Bay's care or to make a donation to support our work, call (415) 927-2273, or visit www.hospicebythebay.org.
