The content of the event is also connected to the novel “Being Mortal” by Atul Gawande. The dinners included a mix of community members and MSUM students and sought to increase effectiveness in talking about death. The events included presentations and discussions with Dr. Tricia Langlois, Medical Director and Brenda Iverson, Director of Community Relations for Hospice of the Red River Valley.
