Development/PR/Marketing Mentoring Program

The Development/PR/Marketing Mentoring Program matches experienced development, marketing, public relations, and sales professionals with people new to the field to help mentees become more effective leaders in their hospice and the community.

Being a mentor for our NCHPP section was personally very fulfilling. Our phone sessions were based on specific topics of interest to my mentee, and followed up with supplemental materials. I also learned a few things from her that have been useful in my own hospice agency. It was a win-win!
