Death & Donuts
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
We are still holding virtual Death & Donuts meetings on ZOOM, and, delightfully, it has opened new doors in ways we hadn’t anticipated. Now people from across the country are joining our discussions and sharing their ideas! It has also given us the opportunity to have some nationally known speakers at our meetings! And this month we have really landed a big one!!
I am so excited and honored to announce that Dr. BJ Miller, a Palliative Care physician at the University of California-San Francisco and past Executive Director of the Zen Hospice Project, will be joining us for our next meeting, which will be Monday, July 13, 2020 from 6:00-7:30pm. We’re changing the format for this meeting and making the first hour a Q&A session between him and the participants.
For those of you who are not familiar with him, google his name and you’ll find dozens of interviews he has done (I love the one with Oprah!), along with some really nice articles about him and his wonderful book entitled “A Beginner’s Guide to the End: Practical Advice for Living Life and Facing Death.” And as I’m sure most of you already know (because I talk about it all the time!), he also has one of the most listened to TED talks ever, titled “What Really Matters at the End of Life.” Please watch it before the July meeting (19:07).
Because of Dr. Miller’s stature in the death and dying community, we expect a larger than usual number of participants. However, we are limited to 100, so we will take the first 100 RSVP's that come back to us either through email or Facebook. The deadline for the RSVP is July 6th, and we will send the meeting information and password to all registered participants by July 8th. We have received his permission to record the meeting so we can post it on the Death & Donuts Facebook page for later viewing.
This is an amazing opportunity for all of us to be able to see and talk with Dr. Miller … an opportunity we probably will never have again. So I’m hoping you will all take advantage of this opportunity and join us for our July Death & Donuts meeting.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 6, 2020. Meeting details and password will be sent to registered participants by July 10, 2020.
