Allied Services Heinz Rehab Hospital will offer its 12th "That All May Worship" conference on Oct. 18 in the Rose Brader (Patient Dining) Room of the hospital, beginning at 8:45 a.m. The theme this year is: "Facing Progressive Disabilities: Keeping the Pace When Things Get Worse." Speakers and panelists will address the challenges of various disabilities that are, as of this time, incurable, such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). Other presenters will examine the needs of caregivers — both family caregivers, as well as professionals (nurses, social workers, chaplains, clergy, etc.). Continuing education credit is available for social workers and chaplains, and is pending for nurses. For information on continuing education, contact Marianne C. Sailus, chaplain, at 830-2039. A brochure is also available at the Allied Services Integrated Health System website at: www.allied-services.org/news-events. Some of the members of the 2012 conference committee, seated, from left, are attorney William Conaboy, CEO, Allied Services Integrated Health System; the Rev. Phyllis Pelletier; Sister Mary Beth Makuch; Juel Judge; Anna Deputy; and Marianne C. Sailus. Standing: Donna Lee Diltz; Archpriest Joseph Martin; the Very Rev. James Hayer, conference chairperson; Rabbi Larry G. Kaplan; Donna Kopicki; and Mary Ann Fedorczyk.
