Community Conversations: A Virtual Event Series

Our next virtual event, Community Conversations: Finding your Way After a Life-Limiting Diagnosis, features a conversation with Charlottesville-based entrepreneur and commercial real estate broker Bob Kahn, who was diagnosed with stage 4 terminal pancreatic cancer in December 2020.

During this one-hour live online event, Bob will be joined by Hospice of the Piedmont’s Chief Medical Officer Tim Short, M.D., HMDC, FAAFP, FAAHPM, and his palliative care nurse practitioner Ashleigh Bergstrom, MSN, RN, FNP-BC, in an honest and brave conversation about his life-affirming path after receiving a terminal diagnosis. (Learn more about our medical team here.)

Bob is currently being treated at the UVA Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center, under the care of Dr. Matthew Reilly, and is also receiving palliative care through the Piedmont Care program for advanced illness (a Hospice of the Piedmont program). During this event, he will share his steps in treatment after diagnosis, his hopes for the future, and how he’s measuring quality of life each and every day.


Our first virtual event aired on March 10 at 2 p.m. You can view the recorded version of Community Conversations: Finding your Voice at the End of Life by viewing the video on this page.
