Nathan Adelson Hospice Presents the Symposium ‘Conversations about Caregiving’ with Prominent Keynote Speaker Tembi Locke, The Kitchen Widow Symposium to Take Place during 13th Annual Multicultural Luncheon Event
Nathan Adelson Hospice, Southern Nevada’s largest non-profit hospice, today announced that compelling keynote speaker Tembi Locke – known as The Kitchen Widow – will address the “Conversations about Caregiving” Symposium at the hospice’s 13 th Annual Multicultural Luncheon. The event will be held March 31 at the Renaissance Hotel in Las Vegas.
The event starts at 10:30 a.m., and the luncheon will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. During the event, Locke will address loss and love, how to help each other through moments of crisis, and how she transforms grief and illness through cooking food. An actor, mother, writer, artist, chef’s wife and now a young widow, Locke is passionate about bringing people together in moments of crisis and helping others through hard transitions. She does this while savoring the flavors, food, and kitchen wisdom from her favorite island in Sicily.
At the event, she will discuss The Kitchen Widow, an inspirational online platform that reclaims the lost art of comfort that supports those confronting illness and loss. By focusing on what matters most – nourishing the body, heart and soul – The Kitchen Widow shares recipes, resources and inspiring content to help make the journey through illness and grief more bearable and more human. Since launching The Kitchen Widow, Locke has delivered a TEDx talk, spoken on behalf of caregivers alongside Kathy Bates, and formed numerous collaborations to support grief.
“Our annual symposium educates numerous community members and professionals about options, ideas and ways to better define the end-of-life journey,” said Carole Fisher, president and CEO of Nathan Adelson Hospice. “Tembi Locke will be a phenomenal keynote speaker as she shares her experiences of her husband’s death and coping through innovative, supportive strategies.”
The Multicultural Luncheon unites people from various cultures and faiths. It consistently relays important information and tools for industry professionals and the community in regards to healthcare trends and end-oflife care. Tickets are $75 per person or $700 for a table of 10. Sponsorships are also available.
