Monday, December 8, 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
Elizabeth Edwards draws upon her strength of purpose, perseverance, warmth and wit to talk openly about overcoming significant life obstacles, including her recurring breast cancer.
She charmed America with her down-to-earth personality as she campaigned across the country during the 2004 and 2008 presidential elections. Now she will inspire current and future health-system pharmacists with a memorable keynote address.
A mother of four children, one of whom died in 1996, Elizabeth has experienced gains and losses, triumphs, trials and tragedies, many similar to those experienced by others, but with the major difference that hers has been played out in the spotlight of the world stage.
Elizabeth has a deep commitment to improving America’s future through strengthening its communities. An accomplished lawyer, she is currently a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, working on healthcare issues. She is an active volunteer for a number of charitable causes, and is dedicated to expanding educational opportunities for all children. In her heartening memoir, Saving Graces: Finding Solace and Strength from Friends and Strangers, she shares her experiences and tells of how others have celebrated her joys and given her strength and hope in darker times.
When Elizabeth Edwards opens ASHP’s 43rd Midyear Clinical Meeting and Exhibition, you’ll want to be present. This will be an unforgettable event.
