Possibly the strangest–and most important–dinner invitation you will ever receive! Talking with your patients or community members about death and dying may seem challenging at times, yet it can be one of the most liberating conversations. These conversations impact the way people live their lives–often long before their final days.
Join us as we explore, through intimate dialogue, the ways in which we as medical providers and faith or community leaders can and do facilitate these important life conversations. Dialogue will be facilitated by the Rev. Melvin Shearin II, Great Hope Baptist Church (Richmond, VA).
This event will take place over the virtual Zoom platform. Attendees will be mailed event materials and a $20 gift card for dinner at their choice of four local restaurants (Abuelita’s; Mama J’s; Soul N’ Vinegar; Tazza Kitchen) approximately one week prior to the event. Please indicate your choice of restaurant in the RSVP details during registration.
Audience: This event is open to medical providers and faith/cultural community leaders. Chaplains, congregation and cultural community leaders, physicians, PAs, and NPs are especially encouraged to attend.
Cost: Free to attendees thanks to the generous support of the Geriatric Training and Education program at VCU. Includes CMEs.
Registration will close November 4.
