The Art & Science of Dying

Death as a Part of Life 


Thursday, May 20, 2021

8:00AM - 2:00PM

Death comes in its own time, in its own way and is as unique as the individual experiencing it. Join us at the 10th Anniversary Thresholds Conference for a series of presentations about end of life, dying, and death. By acknowledging death’s imminence, we open the door for both the living and the dying to learn more and have honest conversations about the end of life.


             Dr. BJ Miller                                           Barbara Karnes


Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Dr. BJ Miller -a hospice and palliative care specialist and acclaimed speaker- and Barbara Karnes - internationally renowned end-of-life educator, and author of the little blue book Gone From My Sight, explain and answer questions about end-of-life care.
