What does it mean to create a cultural shift to the end of life experience? Is it even possible? How do you even start something like that?

On today's podcast, we talk to Shoshana Ungerleider about her experience making that change. Shoshana is one of those amazing advocates for palliative and end of life care. She started the Ungerleider Palliative Care Education Fund to support innovative programs that further palliative care education. She is Executive Producer of the Academy Award-nominated end of life documentaries, Extremis and Netflix’s End Game. Oh yah. She also started End Well back in 2017 which brought together people from all different backgrounds and professions with a goal to talk about end of life care.

This year she is taking the conference virtual with "Take 10" on December 10th. Take 10 brings names like Maria Shriver, Taraji P. Henson, Andy Cohen, Justin Baldoni, and Atul Gawande to speak about issues within palliative care, caregiving, geriatric medicine, and end-of-life care, all in light of what we can learn from the COVID crisis. And best of all it's free. So take a listen to the podcast and sign up for Take 10 here:
