Target Audience

AHEC Scholars across the nation and any other healthcare provider


The tendency of Americans to avoid talking about death can lead to many negative consequences and unnecessary suffering. In this class, we will explore some of these consequences and how innovative conversation games such as “Hello” can help people break through cultural barriers to 1) be able to think and talk more freely about death and 2) envision what would constitute a “good death.” We will cover a variety of interesting topics such as gamification, the Death Positive Movement and advance care planning.

Each participant that attends the workshop in its entirety will receive a boxed copy of the Hello Game set.
