Event Navigation

Kathy Kortes-Miller, Assistant Professor at the School of Social Work and the Palliative Care Research Lead at the Centre for Education and Research on Aging and Health at Lakehead University, presents the 2017 Harshman Lecture Nov. 15 at Cutten Fields.

Kortes-Miller will present “Talking about death won’t kill you!” Kortes-Miller is committed to showing people that talking with family about death and dying is important. Using stories and research, Kortes-Miller extends an invitation to view death as not a taboo subject – but rather a shared life experience. She will explain that death is not a medicalized event but a social process and will offer some practical suggestions for having discussions about dying with those we love.

Free event – RSVP by emailing frandept@uoguelph.ca.
