End of Life is an innovative project that presents readings of ancient Greek plays, Sophocles’ Philoctetes and Women of Trachis, as a catalyst for discussions about death, illness, palliative care, and the challenges faced by patients, families, and medical professionals today. This unique participatory event is intended to promote powerful discussions with the audience, fostering knowledge and understanding about end of life issues and the mortality we all share.

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute will offer a six-week program on end of life planning beginning in September. Area service providers will be on hand to share information on relevant support services starting at 6:00 pm in the lobby.
