Medical education focus of Dine with a Doc

TERRE HAUTE — Dine With A Doc will present an interactive presentation “Honoring Patient with Advanced Illness’s Health Care Preferences: Preventing Regrets!” from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 28 at the Wabash Activity Center, formerly the Senior Center.

Guests will be Debra Litzelman, MA, MD, health care provider educator for the Improving Palliative Care Interventions Project funded by the Walther Foundation; and Wilma Griffin, Palliative Care community education coordinator for the Palliative Care Education Project.

Litzelman is the associate dean for Research in Medical Education at Indiana University School of Medicine. She has an extensive background in medical education including developing, implementing and assessing courses, team-based models of care, communication skills programs and organizational change initiatives to foster relationship-centered work environments. She has worked closely with the other members of the PC Education team delivering interactive education programs for more than 15 years.

Griffin brings an extensive and diverse background in education to the team having worked in public school systems, the Indiana University School of Medicine and in the corporate sector. Her experiences include teaching high school and serving as the Science Department chair. She has worked with physicians and basic scientists at IUSM to design and implement curriculum, as well as with community leaders to create community service projects. Griffin also has worked as a consultant to companies who were planning to lay off or terminate the services of employees. In this capacity, she analyzed the needs of employees, designed curriculum and presented workshops to assist these adult learners to re-enter the job market at an especially vulnerable time in their lives.

Together, the PC Education team is bringing experience and expertise to the education of practicing physicians and their care teams, spiritual and other community leaders and the communities they serve. The team facilitates educational programs that provide knowledge and skills training with a goal to improve alignment of advanced disease patient care and patient preferences for care.

Lunch will be provided courtesy of Cobblestone Crossing Health Campus. Health care providers will share information about their services and provide door prizes. Robin Collins with Springhill Village will provide blood sugar and blood pressure information.

Seating is limited and reservations are required. Call 812-232-7575.
