Bringing End Of Life Planning To Underserved Communities

Randi Belisomo


As Randi Belisomo knows, the spotlight on Chicago’s reputation for violent death often overshadows the day-to-day realities of its most vulnerable aging residents. By working across a network of civic, religious, health and community groups, she and her partners are bringing culturally competent, community-based advanced care planning to Chicago’s South Side Chatham neighborhood.
