Hospice of Santa Barbara is pleased to announce that longtime board member Jill Nida will be joining its Emeritus Board.

Nida’s association with Hospice of Santa Barbara began in 1988 when she joined the Hospice of Santa Barbara Auxiliary. She has served in a number of leadership positions, including as a past president of the Board of Directors, past president of the Auxiliary Board, as a committee chair and as a volunteer.

“We are extremely grateful to Jill for her remarkable commitment to the mission of Hospice of Santa Barbara over the last 26 years,” said Richard Aberle, Hospice of Santa Barbara board member. “We celebrate her dedication and unbounded enthusiasm. She is one of our biggest cheerleaders, and a major champion in the success of Hospice of Santa Barbara.”

Nida joins Hospice of Santa Barbara Emeritus Board members Harold Hicks, Leigh Block, Harvey Bottelsen and Petter Stalker II.

Nida, a graduate of San Marcos High School, SBCC and UCSB, has lived in Santa Barbara her entire life.

Hospice of Santa Barbara “volunteers” its free professional counseling and care management services to more than 600 adults and 125 children every month who are experiencing the impact of a life-threatening illness, or grieving the death of a loved one. Hospice of Santa Barbara is also present on eight local middle and high school campuses as well as UCSB to work with children, teens and young adults who are grieving the loss of a loved one.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
