Breanne Sullivan, MSW’12

  • Hospice Social Worker, Keystone Care

“A great deal of what I learned from being in the MSW Penn Aging Concentration (PAC) has certainly been very helpful in my new role as a hospice social worker. I am much more knowledgeable about services and resources that are available to older adults in the community, and I think I am much more aware of the needs that older adults have especially at end of life.  I also learned a lot about discussing issues around death and loss, which is something that I now do on a daily basis at my job. I found the simulated patient training through PAC program to be an excellent experience because it provided me with a great deal of insight about my one-on-one interactions with patients, particularly when discussing very difficult issues such as illness and death.”
