Good Grief radio host and her guest Ken Ross will be featured in this live broadcast in what is sure to be an entertaining, provocative, and intimate portrait of his mother, a pioneer in end-of-life care.
It's almost impossible to think that it's been 50 years since the publication of "On Death & Dying." This book broke down barriers to end-of-life care, helped ground the nascent hospice movement, and made possible our modern-day hospice care.
Because this is a live radio broadcast, we ask people to arrive close to 1:30. We will close the doors to the room at 1:55. Water will be available but we ask you not to bring snacks, as any sound can be picked up during the broadcast.
There is free parking at this venue.
