How Doctors DIe WITH DR. IRA BYOCK AND DR. JOON YUN
In 2011 Dr. Ken Murray wrote an online essay that circled the globe several times, making it clear that millions of us want to know how clinicians plan on facing their own final days. Dr. Ira Byock is a world renowned leader on the topic of dying well, with many seminal books, and countless articles on the topic. Dr. Joon Yun, who served as a radiologist on the Stanford clinical faculty, has made headlines of late for his $1 million Palo Alto Prize to end aging. These two, seemingly opposing, intellectual heavy weights will launch into a discussion about mortality and the spectre of life extension. Moderated by Deathoverdinner.org Founder Michael Hebb and Dr. Sean O'Grady from Orchestra One.

The LGBTQI community’s relationship with death is “complicated.” Come be with your family of choice for an evening of morbidly fabulous or fabulously morbid stories of not only death, but life, and the challenges of living our truth right up to and through our life’s end. As peoples who have endured, we have stories to share, injustices to right, lives to honor and memorials to plan. Together let us discover ways to celebrate the end of our lives with as much fierce bravery and wit as it takes to authentically live our lives.
