    Hello! I just found this website so I am sorry to hear that the deadline has passed to be considered for presentations.
    My name is Joy Yadao and I am a Registered Nurse and long time hospice nurse (for humans) including being the Executive Director of the largest hospice program in the State of Hawaii. I have been spending the last two years as the Director of Advocacy promoting quality end of life care.
    I am starting an animal hospice in Honolulu, Oakland, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. It is very exciting to be able to serve our animal companions and their families. Please let me know if I can be of any help to you at the conference or in your organization. I travel frequently and enjoy meeting people with such a wonderful calling!
    Aloha, Joy

    Joy, it sounds like you are doing wonderful work and we would love to have you involved in the IAAHPC. I hope you will be able to attend the conference this year and maybe a presentation would work out for next year. We also have webinar opportunities to provide education to veterinary professionals. Thank you so much for getting in touch!
