Chronic and terminal illness is the leading challenge for health care today in terms of quality, cost, and satisfaction. Our goal is to bring together individuals and organizations with the shared passion for creating opportunities to transform health care and reduce suffering for the seriously ill in Hawaii.  This will be a day of learning, networking, strategy sessions, and new opportunities.

Who should attend?
People caring for those who are seriously ill and those who need to understand the issues they are facing.  This includes health care executives, administrators, legislators, doctors, nurses, social workers, case managers, chaplains and family care givers.
