Darryl and Andrea Gladden recently co-presented with Chief Medical Officer Dr. Stephen Goldfine at Goals of Care Coalition of New Jersey Summit 2021 on Improving Equity in Serious Illness Care: Ethical, Cultural & Spiritual Considerations. The Gladdens have made it their personal mission to educate the community about the importance of palliative care, in honor of their beloved daughter Deadra. 

At 27, Deadra was living with severe pain from lupus. She was in a hospital bed and unable to move. With Samaritans expertise, she was able to find quality of life again.
