The February 12, 2018 Meeting

Our speaker Francesca Teixeira spoke on the subject of bereavement, grief and depression. In particular she discussed how symptoms of a major illness, such as lung disease, can be quite similar to indicators of depression. The role of depression in inhibiting recovery from illness was also discussed, and a general topic of finding good resources and assistance was brought up throughout the presentation. The event was video recorded and will be placed online soon.
