April 9: Care at the End of Life

6:00pm

End of Life care addresses a practical challenge: everyone must die and hopes to do so in a comfortable and respectful way. But it also responds to other tense questions: for instance, how does one distribute care in a society riven by economic and social disparity? Care at the End of Life examines current attitudes and obstacles to dying well.A screening of How to Die in Oregon will follow a panel discussion.
