Hospice & Palliative CareCenter is excited to announce the third annual Living Your Best Life Speaker Series scheduled for October 2, 2018 in Winston-Salem. This year’s featured speaker is Isaac Lidsky, author of Eyes Wide Open, a New York Times bestseller and one of the Washington Post’s top 10 leadership books to read in 2017. His main stage TED Talk was viewed more than a million times in its first three weeks. Lidsky will share his eye-opening perspective of how we create our own reality, and believe it. Attendees of this year’s event will gain the vision to shape their lives deliberately, with awareness and accountability.
After graduating from Harvard at the age of 19, Lidsky went on to Harvard Law School where he graduated magna cum laude. As a U.S. Justice Department lawyer, Lidsky argued more than a dozen appeals in federal court on behalf of the United States and never lost a case. He founded a nonprofit organization and within five years grew it to a dozen cities nationwide and more than $5 million, and the internet startup he co-founded sold for $230 million.
Perhaps most striking, Isaac Lidsky is only 37. And he is blind.
Born with a rare degenerative disease of the retina, from age 12 to 25 Lidsky slowly lost his sight. But neither his youth nor his blindness have limited him. This is true in his professional life and personal life alike. “Isaac is inspiring,” says Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. “He triumphs in the face of great challenges with grace and humility. I have seen how Isaac meaningfully connects with and touches those around him, and each of us is better for it.” Isaac married Dorothy, the love of his life, in June 2004. In September 2010, she gave birth to their triplets, Lily Louise, Phineas and Thaddeus – collectively, “The Tripskys” – and in December 2015, baby Clementine completed the family. The Lidsky 6 live in Windermere, Florida.
The team at Hospice & Palliative CareCenter started this community-changing and life-altering event in 2016. The event is designed to educate and 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. Palliative and hospice care, after all, are not about helping people die, but rather helping people live fully and comfortably, making the most of every day,” shared Linda Darden, President and CEO of Hospice & Palliative CareCenter. “I’m thrilled with the level of expertise we are bringing to the region. With universally powerful topics, the impact has enormous potential to change lives,” she continued.
