Join organizers on April 18, at 2 p.m., when Registered Nurse Laurel Lewis discusses Cultivating a Healthy Relationship with Death and Dying in Main Library’s MLK, Jr. Auditorium, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.
Death has been a taboo subject in our society for far too long. In this program, Lewis removes the confusion, fear and denial that most people experience when thinking about death and dying. She discusses the health care choices that are available at the end of life, as well as the ideas, philosophies and options for caring for people during this stage life. Become more informed about your own eventual departure and learn how you can gracefully bear witness to the dying process of those you love.
Lewis has a B.S. in Nursing, and an MS in Spiritual Counseling. She has worked in the health care field for over 20 years, and is currently a hospice nurse.
