“Hospice and Palliative Care” Program March 13

Northern Door Health & Wellness Ministry continues its Community Health Information Programs with “Hospice and Palliative Care” on March 13, 4 pm, at First Baptist Church in Sister Bay. This month’s speakers are Tom Turriff, former hospice chaplain, and Jo Ann Turriff, former hospice nurse, who will discuss their experiences providing hospice and palliative services. Hospice is an interdisciplinary approach to care for terminally ill individuals of all ages, caring for the mind, body and spirit, and palliative care is a multidisciplinary approach to specialized medical care for people with life-limiting illness.

The Ministry also offers free blood pressure screenings on the fourth Tuesday of each month at St. Rosalia’s Church at 5 pm and at the Northern Door YMCA on the second Tuesday of each month from 8:15 – 10:15 am. For more information visit
