Friday Facts

Friday Facts is a short (8:30 – 9:00AM), weekly, news style “show” designed to provide you with the latest updates on a variety of topics and features different guest speakers each week.

Although our work as a Coalition can be formal with legislators, webinars, policy changes, and education, our work is also about changing the culture of Serious Illness Care.

Rich sharing, building community, and creativity comes from these informal conversations that impact more than information, but also our vulnerabilities as human beings.

Friday Facts is much about how we relate to one another, how we operate in our professions, and helps us strengthen resilience in the work that we do.

**Friday facts occur every Friday except on Holidays and the 3rd Friday of each month**

See our schedule below along with past broadcasts.
