Evening Rounds: “For Dear Life” Screening & Discussion

  • This event has passed.

October 17, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


How do we encourage open dialogue about death and dying?

In both professional and personal contexts, conversations around death may be challenging. As public health professionals and communicators, how do we encourage effective dialogue? What tools and resources (such as documentary film) are available?

We hope you’ll save the date for our next event on October 17, as we’re having our first ever Evening Rounds movie night! We’ll be screening a timely and thoughtful documentary, For Dear Life, that tackles important conversations around death and dying through the story of theatre producer James Pollard, and his final years with terminal cancer.

After the screening, a panel of speakers will answer questions, including Dr. Paul Sugar & Dr. Marylene Kyriazis from the Paul Sugar Palliative Support Foundation, featured in the film, and the filmmaker, Carmen Pollard. Learn about the film’s social media engagement strategy and discuss its relevance for your area of practice.

Read the speakers’ full bios on the event page.
