Nancy Hinds is a palliative care pioneer in Fresno, California. She founded the Hinds Hospice which leads palliative care delivery in the region.
It would have been easy for Nancy to do the job in Fresno and to be satisfied with that. But she chose to look beyond her territory and to look at suffering elsewhere. Last month saw her leading a conference, “Hospice and Palliative Care in the Global Community“, which focused on palliative care in developing countries.
Participants from developed and developing countries worked together to share experiences and to develop an action plan for future action.
