Douglas County Residents Invited to Talk About Death and Dying

Death is part of the human experience, yet conversations about death and dying are difficult and often avoided even with our closest family members and friends. Talking About Dying is a free community conversation with Fred Grewe on Thursday, June 27, at 6 PM at Roseburg City Public Library, Deer Creek Room. The program is hosted by Compass Behavioral Health and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.

Talking About Dying facilitators are trained professionals working in the fields of chaplaincy, counseling, gerontology, facilitation, and hospice care around Oregon. This conversation provides an opportunity for participants to hear perspectives and ideas from fellow community members.

The Oregon Humanities Conversation Project offers free programs that engage community members in conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state’s future. Talking About Dying discussions are made possible with support of the WRG Foundation Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation.
