Death & Dying Fellowship
The Death & Dying Fellowship, one of the Feinstein Fellowships, takes on a key challenge: the reality that professionals are not well prepared to deal with death, dying, and grieving families. The Fellowship allows participants to learn, confront, and discuss the legal, medical, social, cultural, familial, and spiritual aspects of death and dying within a multi-disciplinary group in a low-pressure environment. The sessions will include site visits, facilitated conversations, and opportunities to practice conversation skills—a timely skill since Medicare approved payment for advance care planning. During the final session, Fellows will create a community action plan.
We are looking forward to another great series and are excited about new opportunities to learn and collaborate with professionals. The deadline for applications is Monday, December 10. Apply here: https://www.hcfutures.org/fellowships/death-dying-fellowship
