Death and Wine: A PBKACA Salon

Read a post-event article »

Join us for a glass of wine to take the edge off what is all too often a difficult conversation — planning for the end of life. This salon will offer ideas and open discussion about the many things we should prepare, organize, and talk with loved ones about regarding our own end of life wishes and theirs. How do you start this conversation? When do you do it? What is advance care planning? Do I need an attorney? What is my digital estate?

These are questions this salon will confront as we start a conversation that we can take home to our loved ones.

Hosted by Life Matters Media co-founders Mary Mulcahy, M.D. and Randi Belisomo, along with Ronette McCarthy, legal counsel of Elements, the cremation company.
