Speaker’s Bureau and Community Presentations

Community Education

All of us, at some point, will be faced with caring for an aging parent, a spouse, a sibling of friend with a chronic illness — or the loss of someone dear to us. HopeHealth helps to prepare and support people for these realities. Through our Speaker’s Bureau and outreach teams, we offer a variety of free, informative and educational presentations. They range from Speaker’s Bureau presentations at community organizations, schools, faith institutions, and area businesses to professional presentations at local, regional and national conferences.
