somebody’s early in the progression of their disease, you likely can still talk
to them about some of the questions that come up.”— Kate Debartolo
Tune into a thought-provoking episode with special guest, Kate DeBartolo from the Conversation Project on the “Life Happens with Kim Hegwood” podcast. It was a deep dive into the challenging but crucial conversations we need to have with seniors and loved ones about end-of-life care.

help people share their wishes for care through the end of life.

The Conversation Project was founded in 2010, on the belief that these discussions should begin at the kitchen table—not in the intensive care unit.

operations for IHI’s hospital-based programs. Prior to joining IHI, Kate worked as a grant analyst at The California Endowment. She is a graduate of Wellesley
