Living and Dying Well:
Living in the Light of our Mortality

September 6, 2018  |  7pm
US Bank Conference Theater, Ohio Union


We will all die, yet death and the process of dying are taboo topics in our culture. In fact, many people face death without ever fully considering how they would like to die (i.e., in hospice, at home, on pain meds, etc.), or even more importantly how to live in light of their own mortality. How should we live knowing that we will one day die? Can we prepare for death? Are there “ethical” or “unethical” ways to die? What is (or should be) the goal of medicine when treating patients at the end of life?

We’ve invited four experts from a diverse set of disciplines—medicine, theology, philosophy, ethics, and law—and viewpoints, both secular and Christian, for a conversation on the end of life, and what light our mortality sheds to the meaning and purpose of life.

In addition to the evening discussion, we’ve planned a seminar for graduate students to chat with Drs. Lydia Dugdale, Raymond Barfield, and Ashley Fernandez, all Christian doctors and academics, in a smaller setting about what Christian faithfulness in the academy looks like.  Join us from 10am-12pm in Thompson Library Room 202.  Brunch will be provided!
