2022 Ascend: Leading and Managing Through Change
October 16-18, 2022
The Hyatt Lodge, Oak Brook, IL
The 2022 Ascend Leadership Forum is a two-day in-person intensive to support hospice and palliative care professionals as they develop the capabilities required to lead their organization in implementing new directions. This program includes a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary faculty and learners from diverse backgrounds and practice settings.
Even our most gifted leaders are weary and have had their leadership skills tested these last few years. If you need a safe place to reflect and recharge by being around other hospice and palliative care leaders, the 2022 Ascend program is for you.
