Death Ed: Empowering our youth for life

Death Ed: Empowering our youth for life
By discovering what matters most at the end of life, youth will learn to clarify what is essential, right now, enabling advocacy and self-determination for a lifetime. NOTE: This is a private event.

Host Dawn M. Gross, MD, PhD, will facilitate the DeathEd workshop with youth in Bay Area Video Coalition’s nationally recognized Next Gen program, a free after-school program for high school youth, who learn how to tell their own stories through video, music, animation and game design.

Students who participate in the workshop will obtain practical knowledge, dispel myths and build communication skills that instill confidence and clarity around expressing values and preferences for a lifetime. Media, particularly video, is central to how many gain knowledge, from television and film clips to dramatizations and documentaries which are used to demonstrate the importance of talking about death at all ages and stages of life. By discovering what matters most in the context of end of life, it becomes easier to shed light on what matters most throughout life.

NOTE: This is a private event for Next Gen students.
