Health care professionals are invited to Hospice of the Red River Valley’s upcoming Lunch and Learn as we continue to explore topics related to end-of-life care. Lunch and Learns are held every other month on the second Tuesday of the month from noon to 1 p.m.

The next session will be held Tuesday, Nov. 13 from noon-1 p.m. Jennifer Messelt, grief specialist, and Kriston Wenzel, bereavement supervisor with Hospice of the Red River Valley, will present, “Kids and Grief: How to Help.” This collaborative session will help attendees be able to identify signs of normal grief, hands-on tools to assist with the grief process and ways to communicate more effectively with children and teens.
