The Art & Science of Dying

Death as a Part of Life 


Thursday, May 20, 2021

1:00PM - 4:30PM ET



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 VIRTUAL Thresholds Conference for a series of presentations about end of life, dying, and death. By acknowledging death’s imminence, we open the door for better understanding and honest conversations about the end of life.


             Dr. BJ Miller                                           Barbara Karnes


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