“If I have learned anything, it is that we never know when, how, or whom a serious illness will strike. If and when it does, each one of us wants not simply the best possible care for our body but for our whole being.” - Kenneth B. Schwartz, Schwartz Center Founder
Thank you for your support!
Thanks to supporters like you, our organization continues to advance compassionate care as a national priority and as a vital element in every patient-caregiver interaction. As the clinician burnout epidemic grows, our work has never been more urgent than it is now.
With your help, our programs will continue to build a healthcare system that supports the kind of compassionate care that caregivers want to deliver and patients want to receive. Some of these initiatives include:
Our inaugural Compassion in Action Healthcare Conference, which will enable clinicians, system leaders, patients and families to learn about cutting-edge initiatives, strategies, and tools to create and sustain compassionate care. Join the participants who are attending from across the country and around the world.
The National Compassionate Caregiver of the Year Award, which recognizes inspirational compassionate caregivers who display extraordinary acts of compassion.
Our first Compassion in Practice continuing medical education course, which was hosted in partnership with Harvard Medical School. This course enables practicing clinicians to develop a deep understanding of the science and art of compassion.
Thank you for all you do to support these programs, and for helping us keep compassion at the heart of healthcare.
Warmly,Ellen R. Cohen, Board President
