Our Leading Edge Medicine series offers the opportunity for our most loyal donors to meet and hear firsthand from our renowned physicians about the most recent advances in research and patient care. Donors receive an insider’s look at how their contributions are making an impact to improve more lives.
At our most recent Leading Edge Medicine event on January 31, 2023, Debra Parker Oliver, PhD, MSW, discussed what we can learn from the two ends of life's spectrum. She spoke of the transition of birthing and dying from homes to institutions and now into “home-like” environments as a template for transformation of additional health care services.
