Community Conversation Series
The Community Conversation Series is a three evening event dedicated to starting the conversation and providing the tools needed to put one’s priorities and desires into action. Keynote speakers lead discussions about end-of-life care and living for what matters most.
Dying is Not Giving Up
Dying Is Not Giving Up features conversations between Licensed Psychotherapist Kelly Grosklags and her patient, Judy Erdahl, who was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Knowing that her time was nearing an end, Erdahl describes to Grosklags the very human experience of dying, from first learning about her terminal diagnosis to what she hopes her death will be like. Dying Is Not Giving Up teaches all of us - healthcare providers and lay community members alike - that caring for someone at the end of their life can be one of the most rewarding experiences of our lives.
"We Should Talk..."
This group presentation features local actors in two vignettes portraying the contrast of prepared and unprepared families facing life-threatening illness. These one-act plays are followed by a guided look at our Healthcare Toolkit, a comprehensive resource for navigating serious illness. Invite us to your faith community, civic organization, or even a family gathering to share this important message.
Tulsa Healthcare Decisions Day
Do you have a Advance Directive? Only 22% of Oklahomans do! Join us for Tulsa Healthcare Decisions Day, which highlights the importance of early healthcare decision-making and encourages the public to take action.
Before I Die Wall
Before I Die is a global art project that reimagines our relationship with death and with one another. It encourages people of all ages to contemplate death and reflect on their lives by writing their hopes, dreams and aspirations on a public chalkboard. People need no explanation – they approach the wall, absorb it, and contribute. Our wall is mobile and meant to be hosted by local groups.
