Recent Happenings
On February 5, leaders and providers from HealthPartners and Allina Health gathered for an intimate evening with End in Mind. The snow didn't keep more than 75 people from enjoying specially curated art tours and a program filled with music, poetry, and conversations with Cathy Wurzer.

We were thrilled to hear from Andrea Walsh, President & CEO of HealthPartners and Dr. Penny Wheeler, President & CEO of Allina Health about the impact End in Mind has had in their respective organizations and the communities they work in. We also had the opportunity to hear about the connecting work between Dr. Brett Hendel-Paterson from HealthPartners and Dr. Janilyn Richardson from Allina Health about their efforts to train other providers in having difficult but healing conversations with their patients. 
End in Mind recently partnered with Prime Digital Academy UX students to explore opportunities to include our content in Worksite Wellness initiatives. Four students spent hundreds of hours over the last few weeks researching worksite wellness initiatives, interviewing partners and developing prototypes to test.

End in Mind staff will use this research and work with partner organizations to implement elements of this research over the coming months. Stay tuned for more!
