The annual Grief Seminar will be held this year on September 11th and 12th at the TD Convention Center. 

The guest speaker this year is Dr. William G. "Bill" Hoy.

For more than 30 years, Dr. Hoy has walked alongside the dying and bereaved as well as provided continuing education to colleagues in health care and human service professions. He holds a full-time teaching and research post as Clinical Professor of Medical Humanities at Baylor University where he has taught since 2012. Prior to his move to Baylor, Dr. Hoy directed the clinical counseling program (bereavement, social work, and pastoral care) for a large southern California hospice and community bereavement center.

In addition to his graduate education in counseling, Bill holds the Fellow in Thanatology, the highest professional certification for advanced practice professionals in the field of death, dying, and bereavement. He is author of more than 125 articles and a half-dozen books, the latest of which is Bereavement Groups and the Role of Social Support: Integrating Theory, Research, and Practice (Routledge, 2016).

Bill and Debbie Hoy are parents to two adult children and they make their home in rural central Texas, about 25 miles from the Baylor campus.
