What constitutes a good death?
Ann Neumann, author of “The Good Death: An Exploration of Dying in America” is traveling to Springfield on Monday, April 16, to participate in events designed to draw attention to National Healthcare Decisions Day.
“The Good Death,” published by Beacon Press, was inspired by Ann’s personal experience as a caregiver to her father who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
At 11 a.m., Ann will be on campus to participate in a KDRU radio interview to discuss the ways we can improve end-of-life care for patients, their families, and their caretakers. Ann will also be on-hand to greet individuals who get their advance directive notarized at the campus Signing Day event.
On Monday evening, Ann will be the featured speaker at local event coordinated by Respecting Choices of the Ozarks and The Library (Springfield-Greene County Library System).
