Wings is a monthly newsletter about Hospice of Southern Illinois' news, hospice updates,  and information on events, volunteers, and veterans. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for individuals and their loved ones touched by a terminal illness.
Hospice Happenings

October is American Pharmacists Month and we want to help educate our community on three topics this month:
  • Hospice of Southern Illinois' PGY-2  (post-graduate, year 2) in Pain and Palliative Care Pharmacy Residency Program
  • Our full-time, on-staff, PGY-2 Pharmacy Resident, Brad Rea, PharmD
  • Common hospice related pharmacy questions

Throughout the month, we will release short videos addressing Dr. Rea's role, pharmacy myths, tips, and goals of hospice medications to ensure you know your pharmacist and your medicine. Check out our Facebook and YouTube to get your questions answered!

Care Ambassadors
  
Our care ambassadors are those employees who uphold Hospice of Southern Illinois' standard for excellent hospice care and service by going above and beyond for patients, families, team members, or the community.

This month we are highlighting Jennifer Vinyard, Event Coordinator for Hospice of Southern Illinois. Jennifer commented, " I love knowing that we are making a difference in the lives of our patients and families.  When in the community at our fundraising events, it's always a joy hearing the families' stories how Hospice of Southern Illinois' staff made such a difference in their lives at such a difficult time. The awareness fundraising creates about Hospice of Southern Illinois, in our communities we serve, helps us to continue our mission." Click below to read more about her passion and role at our organization.
