November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Awareness Month. On Saturday, Nov. 16, Timothy Moynihan, M.D., and Jacob Strand, M.D., will join us to discuss what are important conversations each patient needs to have with their family and health care team. What is palliative care and how is it different from hospice? Join us.  

Myth or Matter of Fact:  Palliative care is the same as hospice care. 

Note: You can hear the program LIVE Saturdays at 9 am CT on I Heart Radio via KROC AM. The show is taped for rebroadcast by some affiliates. On Twitter follow #MayoClinicRadio and tweet your questions.
