Bioethics Lunch Discussion - Death Positivity
BIONIC and Dr. Barry Belmont invite you to join us for our December Bioethics Lunch and round-table discussion! As we approach the end of another semester, this lunch will focus on Death Positivity - the movement to refocus how society views death and dying - and it's current or possible influences on medicine. Is the fundamental goal of medicine and healthcare to prolong life as much as possible, without accounting for quality of life? Is there a point at which we could or should deem life not worth living? How should we consider the death of ourselves, our families, those in our community, and those we will never meet? How should we use these beliefs and values to design end-of-life care? Please join us for lunch and insightful discussion!
For our Death Positivity chat, we will be joined by Merilynne Rush. Merilynne holds an MS in Hospice and Palliative Studies from Madonna University, and a BSN from the University of Michigan. She is the President of the National End-of-life Doula Alliance (NEDA), a non-profit membership organization brinigng all EOL doulas and trainers in the USA and elsewhere. She also founded and facilitates the Ann Arbor Death Cafe, which has been meeting monthly since November of 2012. Given her educational, professional, and extracurricular background, Merilynne will be a great source of insight about Death Positivity!
When: Tuesday, December 17th | 12:00 - 1:00 pm
Where: NCRC Building 10, ACR1
Please RSVP by Friday, December 13th!
