Hospice of the Red River Valley is pleased to offer a free community event with featured speaker Barbara Karnes, author of “Gone From My Sight: The Dying Experience” (also known as the Little Blue Book) which has sold more than 12 million copies. Barbara will present, “Dying is simple. Why do we make it so hard?”
According to Barbara, “Dying is not a medical event; rather it’s social and communal, and when we’re at the bedside of someone who is dying, it is all about togetherness.” Hospice of the Red River Valley invites the community to spend time with Barbara and explore her thoughts on acknowledging and understanding the dying process. From her compassionate and honest message, attendees may relieve stress and reduce fear.
Barbara’s presentation will be offered three times in two locations:
• Wednesday, Oct. 11 from 9-11 a.m. at Ramada, 1205 N. 43rd St., Grand Forks
• Wednesday, Oct. 11 from 7-9 p.m. at Ramada, 1205 N. 43rd St., Grand Forks
• Thursday, Oct. 12 from 7-9 p.m. at the Delta by Marriott Hotel, 1635 42nd St. S., Fargo
These events are free and open to the public with no registration required. No continuing education units are available. Barbara will also present a full-day conference for health care professionals on Friday, Oct. 13 in Fargo.
