How We Die Now

Oct 24, 2013

As our population grows older more people are engaging in the important work of helping individuals cross the threshold from life to death. Host Charity Nebbe looks at the lives of those who care for people in the final stages before death with Grinnell College sociologist Karla Erickson, author of "How We Die Now: Intimacy and the Work of Dying." Rev. Christine Tinker and Tom Evans who are residents at a retirement community in Grinnell also join the conversation.
