ORONO, Maine — The public is invited to hear a free presentation by Bill Jose on “Hard Choices for Loving People” at 7:15 p.m. Monday, Sept. 8, at Dirigo Pines Inn. 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.
