March 12, 2012It was a great honor to share my perspective that "No One Has To Die Alone" at the recent TEDx Honolulu event. To view, go to http://drlanileary.com/2011/11/28/lanis-talk-at-tedxhonolulu/
Feedback from viewers relayed that they had a new "tool belt" of ways they could now respond to the needs of their dying loved ones. We can increase our competency and confidence by learning new skills, practicing compassion and presence, and accepting the great opportunity of service. You CAN make a difference!
