Hospice of the Red River Valley Announces November Lunch and Learn

Hospice of the Red River Valley invites health care professionals to its November Lunch and Learn as we continue to explore various topics related to end-of-life care.

The next Lunch and Learn will take place on Tuesday, November 20, 2012, from noon – 1 p.m. Connie DeKrey, LSW, bereavement specialist at Hospice of the Red River Valley, will present “Season of Sorrow, Season of Joy—Facing Loss During the Holidays.” Attendees will learn to identify at least four general strategies toward constructive coping with loss. Participants will also be able to discuss how individual strengths/talents can be channeled into “active grieving.”

Hospice of the Red River Valley is an approved provider of continuing education for social workers in North Dakota. This program has been approved for 1 contact hour for social workers.

For your convenience, Lunch and Learns will be held at three Hospice of the Red River Valley locations: Fargo – 1701 38th St. SW, Fargo, ND; Lisbon – 415 Main Street, Lisbon, ND; or Valley City – 1240 W Main Street, Valley City, ND. The Lisbon and Valley City office locations will be connected via video conference to the Fargo office where the live presentation will take place.

Space is limited; pre-registration is required. Contact Missy at melissa.haut@hrrv.org or 701-356-1563 one week prior to the lunch and learn and indicate which location you will be attending. Participants may bring their own lunches; coffee and water will be provided.

Lunch and Learns are free and open to all health care professionals. They will be held on an ongoing basis every other month (January, March, May, July, September and November) on the third Tuesday of the month from noon – 1 p.m. Specific topics and descriptions will be shared closer to each date.
