The mission of the Southeast Institute for Innovation in Palliative and Supportive Care at UAB is to expand palliative and supportive care expertise and increase access for people living with serious illness in the Southeast and their loved ones. Through collaborative research and interdisciplinary training opportunities, we intend to build a network of professionals committed to growing palliative and supportive care services.

Aligned with our mission, we are excited to announce that University of Alabama at Birmingham and Emory University have partnered to co-host Forging the Future of Palliative Care 2022 Summit: Culture, Communication, and Care in the American South!

The purpose of this three-day conference is three-fold:

        - Connecting - Connecting clinicians, educators, researchers, and administrators
        dedicated to the field of palliative medicine in the Southeast.
        - Learning - Learning about evidence-based practice, strategies to reduce health
        disparities,and effective cultural communication.
        - Sharing - Sharing of palliative care expertise and evidence, which can address gaps and
        challenges to providing palliative care everywhere for everyone.

CME/CEU credits will be available for Summit attendees.
