May 23 Medical Assistance in Dying: past, present, & future directions

Join us for a thought-provoking exploration of Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) in Canada. We will explore historical legislation, present-day practices and future directions--including what some see as the "some-day, one-day" inevitability of advance requests for MAiD. As you may expect from a presentation from "The Apprentice", we will get beyond simply exploring the facts and dive into the heart of this tender, tough, and important topic.

 Alzheimer’s isn’t an enemy: easing anxieties and exploring aspirations about dementia

Dementia is a terrifying possibility for many of us as we age. The language we use in modern society to describe people living with this disease is dismissive at best and extremely damaging at worst. Join me for a workshop where we will be introduced to a new perspective on dementia, and explore ways to ease anxieties and embrace positive aspirations for those living with--or fearing they might one day live with--this condition. We will also focus on a few practical steps you can take today to manage the possibility of cognitive changes in your future.


June 6 What you need to know about donating your body to science: a disposition primer

This comprehensive presentation will help you understand what it really means to donate your body to science. We will explore the differences between whole-body scientific donation, "BodyWorks" displays, and organ donation. You'll learn everything you need to know about the process, including how to make a back-up decision (because you might just face the ultimate rejection at the end of life...). We will also do some myth-busting about disposition methods, including green burial, aquamation, and human composting!

Please remember that this class runs from 1:00-2:30
