Seventh HopeHealth Human Dignity Award

Congratulations to The Reverend Janet Cooper Nelson, Chaplain of Brown University, who received the seventh HopeHealth Human Dignity Award during Connecting Together: A Celebration of Hope & Gratitude. This special award is given to people who have dedicated themselves to the core values of hospice: to offer comfort, compassion and dignity to patients at the end of life and hope and healing to their families. Dignity at end-of-life means recognizing the person, their rich history, their lifetime of relationships and their desire to be empowered in their choices, even when physically compromised.
