“What is an End-of-Life Doula?” Wednesday, Aug 1, 1 pm. The presentation is designed
to raise community awareness regarding the End-of-life Doula movement. An
End of Life Doula, or Death Doula, is a non-medical professional that provides
holistic support for the dying and their loved ones before, during, and after
death. Trained in the various end of life stages, a Doula is able to
assist the family with understanding the natural processes providing while
providing comfort and support. A Doula differs from a hospice nurse
in that the nurse is a medical professional that is fully trained in end of
life care. Together they provide the complete array of services to allow
a person to have a positive passing. The presentation will be followed by
a Questions and Answers session. Call 860-763-7425 to register.

TED Talk, Aug 2, 10:30 am. Can I Have Your Brain? The Quest for Truth on Concussions and
CTE. Something strange and
deadly is happening inside the brains of top athletes -- a degenerative

far-too-early death. It's called chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, and
it's the medical mystery that Chris Nowinski wants to solve by analyzing brains
after death. Hear more from this ground-breaking effort to protect athletes'
brains -- and yours, too.
