Empowering Equity at End of Life

By Cassandra Cotton

Healthcare inequalities are often discussed, but there is no one-size-fits-all healthcare inequity, nor a blanket solution — especially with regard to end-of-life care. From economic inequality to cultural or social inequalities, half the battle is identifying the major issues and finding ways to address them.

Often, a presentation on a subject energizes people for a few hours. However, without concrete, feasible action plans and follow-up, even the most passionate mover and shaker can find their enthusiasm fading.

With the Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation’s 17th Annual Multicultural Symposium — which will be held virtually this year due to the pandemic — we hope to show what it takes to identify and effect actual change in any community. We want the participants to come away from the Symposium with a sense of purpose and achievable action, and an understanding of how effective coalitions have proven to be in improving outcomes for all.

With a virtual platform, we have speakers from all over the country discussing topics such as “Race and Cultural Competency in End-of-Life Care” and “Living with Grief: Navigating Loss During COVID-19.”

The Multicultural Symposium will be held virtually on April 14 at 1 p.m. (PST). Tickets are $40/per person and available online at For tickets or more information, call Cassondra Farris at (702) 976-3141 or visit
