End of Life Conference Held at U of M Medical School Duluth Campus

Conference discussed decision making at the end of one's life.

DULUTH, Minn.- The University of Minnesota Medical School Duluth Campus hosted their second annual Healthcare Ethics Conference, about decision making at the end of one’s life.

Panels focused on topics like rural end-of-life care, advanced care planning, and more.

“We’re afraid to talk about death,” said Cathy McCarty, Associate Dean for Research. “And what’s really nice about today is we have physicians and nurses and chaplains and social workers and physical therapists and really the wider community talking about those issues.”

The End of Life theme at this year’s conference was decided by attendees last year.
