Nationally Known Political Icons and Strategists Set To Speak In Winston-Salem

Trellis Supportive Care Pulls In Extraordinary Panel for Annual Living Your Best Life Event

Piedmont/Triad, NC – Trellis Supportive Care (formerly Hospice & Palliative CareCenter) is excited to announce the fourth annual Living Your Best Life Speaker Series scheduled for September 25, 2019 in Winston-Salem. This year’s event brings three nationally known political icons and strategists, each with decades of notoriety and recognition as frequent guests on network and cable news shows; Ann Compton, Mary Matalin, and James Carville.

Ann Compton will share her insights and moderate a discussion between the powerhouse husband and wife duo, Matalin and Carville, who hold deep and divergent political views. The couple is best known for their highly passionate expression of opposing political views. While on opposite sides of the aisle, they have a long marriage where their political differences have not become personal differences.

With our prestigious panel of key players who have been on the frontline of the national political scene, we will explore political polarization, ways back to civility, and consider how we can be part of the solution. This year’s Living Your Best Life Speaker’s Series will highlight our ability to create a richer and more meaningful life through constructive engagement, promoting both advocacy for causes we believe in and volunteerism for organizations that serve people in need.

The team at Trellis Supportive Care started this community-changing and life-altering event in 2016. The event is designed to inspire the community to live their very best lives – now, and for the rest of their lives. “We named this event Living Your Best Life to help spotlight our mission of helping people live fully and comfortably, making the most of every day,” shared Linda Darden, President and CEO of Trellis Supportive Care. “I’m thrilled with the level of expertise we are bringing to the region and I suspect these powerhouse speakers will bring a whole new level of excitement and a glimpse into the 2020 presidential race,” she continued.

These nationally known speakers have impressive resumes. Ann Compton joined ABC News in 1973 as the first woman assigned to cover the White House by a television network. From her front seat at the White House for ABC News, Compton covered seven presidents as well as innumerable life-changing and globe-altering events that made the daily headlines. She knows first-hand of the people and issues that are shaping the future of this country.

Mary Matalin is one of the country’s foremost conservative political strategists and commentators, admired for her astute insights, intellectual integrity and her outspoken views on Congress and the future of the Republican Party. Matalin was deputy campaign manager for President George H. W. Bush, assistant to President George W. Bush, and counselor to Vice President Dick Cheney.

James Carville is one of the most recognizable figures in politics. He is an insider, frequently seen on TV analyzing the Trump Administration, Congress, the 2020 Presidential election as well as the global political landscape. He is well known for his bombastic, enthusiastic, shoot-from-the-hip, political commentary. His quick wit and Southern drawl earned him the nickname “Ragin’ Cajun.”

Trellis Supportive Care (formerly Hospice & Palliative CareCenter) was the first hospice in the state of North Carolina. Since 1979, hospice care has been the cornerstone of the organization’s care; however, over the years, new and expanded programs have been introduced. These programs include grief counseling and advance care planning — both free of charge — for anyone in the community, as well as expanded palliative care services designed to meet the needs of patients earlier in the disease process. In 1998 the Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home was opened, providing around-the-clock care to patients and families needing short-term inpatient care or respite care.

The Trellis Supportive Care staff is comprised of specially trained professionals who work as a team to help patients and their families live fully and comfortably, with hope — even during life’s most challenging time.
