Death over Drafts Happy Hour is opportunity for those who serve in the end of life space and the curious to gather. It started with Stefanie Elkins, Eldercare Specialist/End-of-Life Doula with Be Present Care along with Jill Schock, Death Doula LA, welcomed others who shared their passions-beer tasting & engaging conversations on death & dying. Monthly Happy Hours continued at different greater Los Angeles breweries until COVID-19 where it then switched to Zoom*
