The New Age of Death & Dying: Fifty Years after Kübler-Ross
September 29, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Join us for this free event at Third Unitarian Church on Sunday, September 29, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Ed Gogol, President of Final Options Illinois will share news of the Medical-Aid-In Dying movement, now legal in California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Montana, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, and District of Columbia.
In her book, “On Death and Dying”, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross revealed the widespread denial of death in America. Motivated by her ground-breaking work, we have seen the growth and acceptance of hospice and palliative care. While we can benefit from living longer, we can also suffer longer, unprepared for the ethical and personal decisions required at the end of our lives.
