Event Date:

In a culture where death is often perceived as optional, Covid-19 has been an unwelcome reminder of our mortality. In this presentation, Dr. Felicia Cohn will explore some myths and realities of dying and changes in how we die. While dying is truly not optional, she will discuss some of the choices we can make.
