Family Caregiver Virtual Symposium
Wednesday, February 17, 2021
9 – 11 a.m. MST
Internationally Renowned Keynote Speakers
Arthur Kleinman, MD
The Soul of Care: Addressing The Crisis in Caregiving
Pauline Boss, PhD
Caregiving in the Midst of Pandemic Uncertainty
We are bringing together two luminaries in the world of caregiving for the first time anywhere. Arthur Kleinman, MD, and Pauline Boss, PhD, will share their professional expertise as academicians, researchers, clinical practitioners, and authors, as well as relate their personal experiences as caregivers to their beloved spouses.
Dr. Kleinman will draw from his most recent book, The Soul of Care: The Moral Education of a Husband and a Doctor, and share his reflections about caring for his wife and how the experience transformed his thinking about our medical system and the need to put those who give care at its center.
Dr. Boss will discuss concepts from her upcoming book, The Myth of Closure: Ambiguous Loss in a Time of Pandemic (W. W. Norton, 2021), focusing on how new ambiguous losses have been compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic and how family caregivers can cope and stay resilient. She will share techniques for successfully navigating the caregiving journey.
Whether you are a family caregiver or a professional, this truly will be a memorable learning experience. KJZZ reporter Kathy Ritchie will moderate the discussion. Participants will have an opportunity to submit questions during the presentation to be answered by Dr. Kleinman and Dr. Boss.
