Lighthouse Hospice is proud to sponsor another graduate internship from the therapy department at Drexel University.
Last year it was a Dance and Movement Therapist; this year it is an Art Therapist. She will be with us all year.
Our core value of the vital role of EDUCATIONAL ALLIANCES is why we do - not only this program - these sorts of ALLIANCES in as many places as we can. We teach the ROWAN SOM Medical Students and the Our Lady of LOURDES Nursing Students on a regular monthly schedule. We are also affiliated with the Cooper University Hospital Palliative Fellowship and provide education as needed there.
Education brings state of the art science, compassion, and care into the lives of students, teachers, and patients as well as patient families. It also helps to normalize and simplify difficult things in our lives.
It is a HUGE WIN - WIN.
It is not often that you get the chance to bring good people together for a project that is exciting and do good at the same time. But, it really should be. It would be great to be able to get skin in the game on great projects with great people for great causes on a daily basis (but now that I think of it I do get to do that more than I thought).
This project is a blend of diversity. We are getting together with some folks at local IT firms (Lela Carpenter-Genzlinger of PCS and Matt Skinner of MTS Software) that love to do good for this AWESOME not for profit - BRINGING HOPE HOME - and we are doing a fundraiser. The fundraiser will be at the Capital Grille in Cherry Hill and will be an artshow of two local artists. The Founder and CEO of Bringing Hope Home, Paul Isenberg, will speak that night.
You will get a chance to chat with the artists, see their art, buy their art, contribute to BRING HOPE HOME (which donates funds for cancer patients and families to pay their bills) and hear about the good work of BRINGING HOPE HOME. Of course there will be food and beverages to boot. Sooooo, stayed tuned, but here is a little info to whet your appetite.
