Dr. Mary Jo Lewis practiced internal and geriatric medicine for thirty years and continues to provide medical direction in skilled nursing facilities. Her focus on guiding the patient and family through the systems of care from clinic to hospital, skilled nursing care, and hospice and end of life care led her to her current work in the exploration of spirituality and leadership through coaching, spiritual direction, and teaching. She will speak to Encore about how the medical community has changed and how senior adults can navigate a complicated world of medical care.
