Educational Programs

The Westchester End of Life Coalition educates about end-of-life issues. The goal is to increase awareness, offer practical information, and influence policy to improve the end of life experience.

We provide community lectures, panel discussions, study groups, and workshops for professionals. We hold public forums on topics such as access to hospice and caring for children and adolescents with life limiting conditions as well as policy forums with advocates and legislators.

We welcome your suggestions for issues, books and speakers on topics you would like to know more about or are of interest to you.
