Dying to Talk #1: "Until death it is all life"

Dr. Dawn Gross

Dawn Gross, MD, PhD has been caring for people with life-threatening illnesses for over a decade. She is committed to revolutionizing the way we talk about — and prepare for — death.  On her special KALW series Dying To Talk, she and her guests will create a safe space to transform the experience of end-of-life conversations from dread to discovery.

On the first episode: “Until Death It Is All Life.” Knowing that we are mortal is different than knowing that we will die. Explore the opportunities that arise for ourselves and those we love when we face death head on with a healthcare advocate at our side. January 14 at 7pm.
