On November 5, 2019, Nursing Clinical Placement Coordinator Amanda Waterman, MSN, RN was awarded the Heart of Hospice Award from Alive Hospice.

Waterman connected Belmont’s graduate nursing program with Alive for end-of-life care training. Her advocacy also led to Alive’s first academic clinical research project in 2018 on stress and coping in hospice care teams.

Alive’s Heart of Hospice Awards honor community leaders in end-of-life care. These individuals are incredible educators, partners, connectors, donors and volunteers whose support for Alive’s mission has brought comfort and dignity to dying patients and their families. Alive serves nearly 4,000 hospice patients and family members each year and provides nearly two million dollars in financial support for those who need help covering the costs of their care. Thousands more benefit from Alive’s free end-of-life education and affordable grief counseling.
