This Event has already passed.

Event Summary

When patients travel from all over the globe for care at Philadelphia's renowned medical centers, they and their families face an unexpected financial crisis: How to afford housing while they're here? For a year, Adayna and Travis Commodore of South Carolina have found respite at the Bala Cynwyd home of Page Talbott and Jim Gould, volunteers with Hosts For Hospitals, which pairs local families with out-of-town patients undergoing treatment. Meet them at our next Inquiring Minds speaker event, moderated by Ronnie Polaneczky, editor of The UpSide, the Inquirer's new weekly section of positive news.
