As many years as I’ve been in the health field, it’s never been easy to lose someone, whether personally or professionally. Although it’s something many people avoid talking about, death and the grief that follows it are unavoidable.
I was reminded of this recently after losing a lifelong friend who lost her battle with cancer. We knew some months ago that we would lose her… but it didn’t make it any easier. My grief is something I’m still dealing with (and know I will continue to deal with). I’ve been doing a lot of research for Public Health Corps on this topic lately in an effort to help any of our readers who may be going through a similar difficult time, and I thought I would share some of my findings with you, as well.
