Palliative Care – It’s not Hospice

Palliative Care is often misunderstood. The goal of Palliative Care is to improve the life of the patient. Learn more about the options involved; how and when to elect to utilize a palliative care approach and what this means to you and your family.

Dr. Gil will lead a presentation about palliative care and provide answers to your questions. Join us on Thursday, March 16, 7:30pm in the Bender Social Hall for an educational discussion to help you gain a better understanding on this newer approach.

 Dr. Elisa Gil-Pires is the Vice President of Medical Affairs/Medical Director on the Charles E. Smith Life Communities Campus, having joined us in December 2013.  

Dr. Gil holds Board Certifications in Hospice and Palliative Medicine, Geriatric Medicine, and Internal Medicine.  She was recently named a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and is a certified Medical Director.
