Orono – The public is invited to hear a free presentation by Bill Jose on Hard Choices for Loving People at the Dirigo Pines Inn on Monday, September 8 at 7:15 PM. The program is about coming to terms with death. Jose will push the boundaries of thinking about the end of life and how to deal with it; he will encourage attendees to visualize their own deaths, to imagine what a “good death” might mean, and discuss what we can do to increase the likelihood of having a “good death.” Every person that attends the program will be given a copy of the book by Hank Dunn: Hard Choices for Loving People.

Bill Jose holds a PhD in Social Psychology from Stanford University and a post-retirement BFA in Sculpture from the Massachusetts College of Art. He recently completed a Certificate in Clinical Ethics at the Center for Practical Bioethics. He teaches a course at the University of Southern Maine on end of life decisions. He has volunteered at Maine Medical Center

and the Hospice of Southern Maine.
