To live well is to get ready to die well. Our daily lives create the person we will be when we die and, thus, the kind of death we will experience. This educational talk will explore goals, strategies, and tactics we can adopt to live meaningful, fulfilled, and productive lives. Chris Palmer will lead us in a reflection of our own lives, contemplating what matters deeply to us, considering how we find purpose and meaning, devising a personal mission statement, examining how to take better care of ourselves, and exploring how all of these practices can impact on the quality of our death.

Chris Palmer is an author, speaker, wildlife filmmaker, conservationist, educator, professor, and advocate for reform in aging, death, and dying. He serves on the Board of Montgomery Hospice (Maryland) and Prince George’s Hospice and as Vice President of the Board of the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Maryland and Environs. Chris also serves on the Advisory Council for the Maryland Office of Cemetery Oversight and on the Board of the Bethesda Metro Area Village (BMAV). Within BMAV, he founded and leads the aging, dying, and death group. Chris is a trained hospice volunteer and was formerly a Board member of the Green Burial Association of Maryland. He frequently gives presentations and workshops to community groups on aging, death, and dying issues.

Chris has written ten books. The latest, to be published by Rowman & Littlefield later this year, is Achieving a Good Death: A Practical Guide to the End of Life—proceeds from all his books fund scholarships for American University students.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration required.
