Death Cafe

Hosted by Emory School of Medicine professors and palliative care specialists, Dr. Joanne Kuntz and Dr. Lynn O’Neill, Death Café aims to normalize discussion about death with the hope that, by facing the concept of death, we will be inspired to live our lives more fully. At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea, and discuss death. A Death Café is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objective, or theme. All pre-health students are invited to take advantage of this opportunity for personal and professional development. To learn more, see the New York Times article about the founder of the Death Cafe Movement. RSVP required.
