Five Wishes brought to Life

Palliative Care Grand Rounds

If you've been wonder what palliative-care-minded bloggers are writing about, here's your chance to find out ...

I'm a little behind on posting this, but this month's Palliative Care Grand Rounds is up at Pallimed Arts & Humanities.

Next month, PCGR will be hosted by Death Club for Cuties (gotta love that name!).
