                       QUALITY IN HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE CARE
                       Shantanu Agrawal, MD MPhil, is president and CEO of the National Quality Forum (NQF). As
                       the former deputy administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Agrawal
                       led an effort to improve the physician experience with Medicare and improve healthcare value
                       by lowering the cost of care. He was one of the main architects of the CMS plan to address the
                       national opioid misuse epidemic. He will be joined by Betty Ferrell, MA CHPN FAAN FPCN,
                       and Martha Twaddle, MD FACP FAAHPM HMDC, for a panel discussion on quality in palliative
                       care. Amy Melnick, MPA, CEO of the National Coalition for Hospice and Palliative Care, will
                       moderate the panel.

                        DEFINING HOPE: WHAT MAKES LIFE WORTH LIVING?
                        Carolyn Jones is a filmmaker and photographer who documents intimate stories highlighting
                        the power of courage and human dignity. Using the elements of storytelling, she crafts books
                        and films are that moving, powerful, and spirited. Her newest documentary, Defining Hope,
                        is the culmination of a journey investigating how we can make better end-of-life choices. She
                        will bring an outsider-looking-in perspective, describing her journey into the world of health
                        care as a journalist, a patient, and a family member.

                                                  THE STATE OF THE SCIENCE CELEBRATES 15 YEARS
