Now in its second year, the Art for Charlie Foundation will host its Pediatric Hospice and Bereavement Conference on Saturday, Nov. 21 in East Lansing. This one-day conference, led by Dr. Jane Turner of the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, is designed for healthcare, counseling and social work professionals from across the state as well as parents. The event was created to identify and remedy gaps in resources for dealing with the terminal diagnosis or death of a child and its impact on the family and community. This year’s conference has a special emphasis on service needs in Michigan and beyond, featuring leaders in palliative and hospice care from around the country. The conference is co-sponsored by Hospice of Michigan. The conference, held at Marriott at University Place in East Lansing, will begin at 8 a.m. with breakfast and registration followed by a keynote address at 9 a.m. A buffet lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m., and the conference will close at 4:30 p.m. Registration is $75, which includes breakfast and lunch, to attend the full day of sessions. A $35 registration rate is available for families with present or past involvement with pediatric care and for full time students. To register, visit http://www.artforcharlie.com/conference.htm#form. Accommodations for Friday and Saturday nights are available at special rates at the Marriott at University Place, East Lansing through the link on the Art for Charlie website.
