The mission of Living Bridges is to promote well-being and humanize health care in order to contribute to a more humane and healthy world.
Living Bridges supports comprehensive, public health approaches to health care sustainability where the well-being of health care organizations and health care professionals are not separate from the well-being and health of individuals and communities.
In 2007, hospice nurses Silvia Talavera and Camille Adair founded Living Bridges to address gaps in end-of-life education and health care sustainability.
Living Bridges sponsored a hospice and palliative care conference in 2008, with a premier screening of Camille Adair’s documentary film, Solace: Wisdom of the Dying.
Since then, Living Bridges has served as the fiscal agent for emotional intelligence and end-of-life care trainings, educational documentary films, health care leadership networks, arts in health care programs and research through a pilot study of the impact of emotional intelligence and stress management training on nursing students through a partnership with the University of New Mexico Taos.
Living Bridges will continue to partner with health care professionals, leaders and community members in humanizing health care.
Living Bridges is a non-profit 501c3 corporation formed under New Mexico law on March 12, 2007, with Re-stated Articles of Incorporation effective May 9, 2007.
