GeriPal at HPNA/AAHPM in Boston!

The annual HPNA/AAHPM conference starts tomorrow and many of us will be in Boston (me, Eric Widera, Patrice Villars, Rebecca Sudore, Bob Arnold, VJ Periyakoil, among others).  We decided to take a cue from big pharma (facetiously) and advertise GeriPal with pens - look for them!

Two GeriPal related events you should know about:
  1. Social Media in Palliative Care Communities: Developing and maintaining your online presence.  Presentation by Eric Widera, Christian Sinclair, and Alex Smith.  Friday March 5th 7-8:15am.  Set your alarm!
  2. Party!  We are cohosting a gathering with Pallimed Friday night March 5th at 8pm at Lir Irish Restaurant and Pub, 903 Boylston (1/2 a block from the convention center). Appetizers on us!
Looking forward to seeing you in Boston!

Commenting from the field here with overcast skies and snow flurries (well cold light rain)in beautiful Boston...the conference energy here is BIG. Big space, big signs, lots of peeps (big, medium,and small) with name tags.
Adding to shameless advertising: Come see Rebecca Sudore, Elise Carey, and my poster #746, "Sitting with You in Your Suffering: Lessons about Intractable Pain at the End-of-Life".

We were wondering where you were HP! Good times . Great to meet everyone in person (except HP). Everyone give a big thank you to Alex for the food.

We will need to start planning on the party for Vancouver now too.
