We are a group of citizens dedicated to helping individuals live with dignity, comfort and peace as they near the end of life. The mission of the Mid-South Coalition for Comfort Care and Bioethics is to educate and support  community members and providers concerned with issues from chronic or serious illness through end of life.  We are delighted to have you join us.

2017 MCCCB Consumer Education Presentations

This year we are extending the reach of our Community Education Programs to additional public libraries and to senior centers.  The first of these presentations will be held from 10:00 - 11:30 AM on Tuesday, February 21st, the Lewis Senior Center, located at 1188 North Parkway.  Susan Crowson, Program Manager for the Baptist Memory Care Center, will speak on Is It Alzheimer's, Or Is It Aging? 

With over ten years' experience specializing in memory diseases, Susan has developed systematic approaches to recognizing and identifying loss and behaviors due to dementia. You need not be a senior to attend!
