Samira K. Beckwith, president and CEO of Hope HealthCare Services, addressed the 2015 National Summit on Advanced Illness Care: Driving Change through Leadership, Evidence and Action in Washington, D.C.

Beckwith served on a panel titled, “The Continuum of Care,” where she shared Hope HealthCare as a model for providing exceptional care and support to individuals and their loved ones as they fulfill life’s journey.

The two-day summit was convened by the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC) to provide an opportunity for innovators in policy, as well as nationally recognized healthcare providers, faith leaders, patients and family members from across the nation, to discuss implementing proven models of care.

One of C-TAC’s primary goals is to ensure that people have access to high quality, person- and family-centered care.
