I am wondering if there is a prison hospice program in the Washington DC area. I live in Silver Spring, MD and currently am a non-medical hospice volunteer through Hospice Caring.
I work as a geriatric nurse practitioner in the DC area and went to Yale School of Nursing while Florence Wald was there. I am also interested in volunteering.
