End of Life: The Conversations and Work of Planning
Join medical and legal professionals and clergy from our community for four sessions on the many facets of decision-making around end of life care and preparation. We welcome participants of every age, whether you are entering into this discussion for the first time, are planning for yourself or a loved one, or have experiences to share.
Sessions will feature guest speakers from a variety of perspectives and backgrounds. There are very practical “takeaways” for each session. Participants will be invited to discuss, ask questions, and do practical work with the advice of experts, if they wish.
You may attend each session independently of others, though they do build on each other.
