Carla S. Alexander, a specialist in end-of-life care, will give a lecture, "Hospice and Palliative Care: Is There a Difference?", at noon on Wednesday, March 10, in Shriver Hall on the University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St., in Baltimore.

Alexander, president-elect of the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, is one of the country's leading authorities on patient and family-centered care. She is also a leading advocate of an interdisciplinary team approach that centers on the active anticipation, prevention and treatment of suffering for patients who are dying.

Alexander is director of Palliative Care at the University of Maryland Institute of Human Virology; assistant professor of Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine; assistant professor of Oncology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine; and medical director of the Johns Hopkins Home Hospice Program.
