Death FAQ

Death FAQ
What are the most pressing questions you have about end of life? Five end of life experts will take the stage to take your questions and answer some of the most daunting questions we face.

Come early to enjoy the Reimagine Community Gatherings before this event. These special Gatherings are an opportunity for the community to connect at our inviting Reimagine Hub space for conversations, meaningful connections, and special program offerings. The Community Gatherings will be open between 5pm-7:30pm! See featured programming for the night here.

For the past eight years, Death Over Dinner has been researching death questions, cataloging and testing the most pressing questions we have about end of life. A year ago we started asking dozens of end of life experts these questions and recording their remarkable answers. In preparation for the the release of DEATH FAQ, we are hosting a lively evening - of questions, answers and general exploration - with some of our brilliant friends.

Please join Michael Hebb and a panel of his friends as we consider the questions that keep us up at night. Ticket holders will be able to submit questions to the panel prior to the event. Michael will be joined by Dr. Joon Yun, Dr. Dawn Gross, Sandy Gibson, Alua Arthur, Brad Wolfe, and some surprise guests.
