“HPNF is grateful for the opportunity to recognize Dr. Dionne-Odom, a nationally known leader in hospice and palliative care research,” said HPNF/HPNA President Michelle Webb, DNP, RN, CHPCA®.

Please join the HPNF Florence Wald Champions with a contribution to HPNF to recognize Dr. Dionne-Odom as a pioneer and leader in developing, testing, and implementing “real-world” early palliative care support for family caregivers of persons with advanced cancer, particularly in under-represented populations and settings.
