Miss GA spreads word about hospice

November 8, 2004

Tifton- Twenty-four year old Danica Tisdale stopped in Tifton Monday to speak at the Tift Regional Medical Center November lecture series.

Her message was centered around hospice care and the need for more people to become hospice volunteers.

"One of the most significant things that astounds me is that so many people are uneducated about hospice care services. So as Miss Georgia that's been kind of my responsibility or my role thus far, to educate those people who don't know much about hospice care," says Tisdale.

Tisdale became a volunteer after her grandfather became a hospice patient in Delaware three years ago.
