The following comes to us from Susan Levine, Executive Director of Hospice of the Valley:

Hospice of the Valley is the go-to organization for education and information about end-of-life care. This month's E-news shares several exciting updates about our community leadership -- from new grant funding for medical student education about hospice -- to a TV news report about the importance of end-of-life discussions between doctors and patients. We're also pleased to be named one of the Valley's top employers in two different rankings. Details follow...

Piper grant to fund hospice education for medical students

Hospice of the Valley has been awarded a $217,000 grant by Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust to teach Phoenix medical students about hospice and palliative care. "Hospice of the Valley has done a remarkable job expanding end-of-life care training to medical residents, nurses, chaplains, social workers and hospitalists," said Judy Jolley Mohraz, president and CEO of Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust. "Now medical students will also learn how to talk with patients and families about hard but critical end-of-life issues." Read more here: HOV Awarded Piper Trust Grant
