SMN Expo 2019: Deva Nation presentation videos

Passing along this information from Mary Ann Boe, one of our presenters at SMN Expo 2019:

Hello Nurses,

I’m very sorry the videos didn’t work at my presentation. You will get a much clearer understanding of 1) what an end of life doula does and 2) how a compassionate community can support people in their quest for well-being by viewing the videos below. Bringing together healthcare and community sectors builds social capital and creates an environment that can provide health promotion and support now and at life’s end. Thank you.
