The All-City Palliative Care Lecture Series is a longstanding monthly gathering of leaders in palliative medicine. Each month, from October to May, speakers lead the lecture and conversation on a topic related to palliative medicine. The goal of the lecture series is to convene healthcare professionals across disciplines and organizations and to empower each other's programs. The series is a safe environment for sharing - whether it be ideas, innovations, policies, or challenges, we want collaboratively improve care for patients nearing the end-of-life.
