Paul Pepper: Dorreen Rardin and Jackie Reed, "Caring Hearts and Hands of Columbia"

Jackie Reed and Dorreen Rardin

"There's a group of people that we were missing," says DORREEN RARDIN, retired coordinator of palliative care at Boone Hospital Center in Columbia. That "group of people" is anyone with a serious illness who can't be cared for outside of a hospital setting for one reason or another. To help ease the financial burden, Dorreen and JACKIE REED are starting 'Caring Hearts and Hands of Columbia', which will allow for the patient to come 'home', free of charge. June 17, 2019
