CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – The death of a loved one. Losing a job. Unprecedented changes to a way of life. Most of us have experienced grief in some way over the last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That's why United Way of the Coastal Bend is hosting a free, virtual Real Talk panel discussion on surviving grief.
"Even those who haven’t lost someone to COVID have suffered other losses that can affect them at a very deep level," said Libby Averyt, President and CEO of United Way of the Coastal Bend. "I think in some way, we could all use some help with grief right now. We don't have to suffer alone."
The event will take place Tuesday, June 15, and feature panelists Kristi Phillips, the Executive Director at Family Counseling Service, and Dr. Nelly Garcia Blow, a geriatrician at CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital-Shoreline’s Level II Trauma Center. Discussions will explore the different types and signs of grief, the importance of self-care, and helpful resources available.
