This study group will be online. We will cover a number of topics relating to end of life decisions. They include: Michigan's laws relating to burial; honest talks with doctors, based in part on Atul Gawande's book, Being Mortal; choosing time of death; interesting cross-cultural funeral rituals; and options outside of traditional burial such as cremation, green burial, donation to medical schools, reef burial, cryogenics, and bio-urn (ashes planted with a tree seed). Instructor Marion Holt has extensive knowledge of this subject and has developed two courses on aging. The study group will be held on Tuesday, September 29.
