Grief Awareness Day
Please join the UNC Hospitals Bereavement Support Services for our 4th annual Grief Awareness Day on Nov. 3. It is an intentional time set aside to join in solidarity with staff, patients, and families who are grieving the loss of a loved one, colleague and/or friend.

Stop by and create a leaf in their honor and add it to our Tree of Life! This tree will be hung in the Children’s Chapel after the leaves are added.

For more information, please call Heidi Gessner, UNC Hospitals Bereavement Coordinator at 966-0716.
