From Grant to Workshop, Plaza’s ‘Can we Talk?’ starts Talking…


The Collaborative for Palliative Care (A group of over 50 public and private organizations collaborating on palliative care and end of life issues), is holding its 7th Interdisciplinary and Interfaith Conference about Palliative and End of Life Care, on June 6th and 7th. This year’s Conference is titled: ‘Changing the Conversation about Serious Illness: The Future of Palliative Care’.
“Plaza is honored to be a part of this conference” says Stephanie Garry, Chief Administrative Officer of Plaza Jewish Community Chapel, “and proud to be participating in a workshop which was created through a Plaza Grant to further end of life conversations. I am excited to witness firsthand the progress and impact of this program.” Stephanie will be accompanied at the ‘Can we Talk?’ workshop by Julie Buyon, Vice President of the Westchester End-of-Life Coalition, and Director of ‘Can we Talk?’ and Heidi Weiss; Westchester Jewish Council Executive Director.
Plaza has a long history of providing End of Life (EOL) educational programs and sponsoring EOL related conferences in Westchester. In 2015 Plaza deepened it’s commitment by awarding a grant to the Westchester End-of-Life Coalition to support ‘Can We Talk?’, an educational program for Jewish congregational leaders in Westchester County to promote conversations about advance care planning for health care, in a Jewish context with their congregants. The program’s goal is to improve the end-of-life experience for Jewish congregants in Westchester by encouraging and facilitating advance care planning conversations and documentation.
