End of life, not of hope

In partnership with Hospice of Michigan and Spectrum Health, Kuyper College hosted an end of life forum—“Christian Perspectives on End of Life: Holding on and Letting Go.” The event featured a multidisciplinary panel of experts who addressed the topic from different sides of the issue. Dr. Michael Paletta, vice president of medical affairs for Hospice of Michigan; LuAnn Arnson, master’s level clinical social worker and bereavement counselor for Spectrum Health Hospice; and professor of theological studies and chairman of Kuyper’s Bible and theology department, Branson Parler, spoke about approaching the issue in a holistic way–not just caring for the body, but for the whole person, as well as for family and friends.

The event was approved by the state board on social work toward continuing education credits for all social workers in attendance.
