Death can sometimes seem far away on a college campus, but it is, of course, the final fact of life for everyone. A Duke Chapel "Bridge Panel" explores death and dying from personal, practical, and theological perspectives. The conversation, "What to Say when Someone is Dying," is part of the Chapel's Bridge Panels series that seeks to connect people from various walks of life to discuss issues of shared concern.
The panelists include: Jennifer Gentry, Nurse Practitioner with Duke Palliative Care; Raymond Barfield, Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Christian Philosophy at Duke; Karla FC Holloway, James B. Duke Professor of English, Professor of Law, and Professor of African American Studies at Duke; and Richard Lischer, James T. and Alice Mead Cleland Professor of Preaching. The panel is moderated by Luke Powery, Dean of Duke Chapel.
The discussion is being organized in partnership with the Duke University School of Nursing, Duke Medicine's Pastoral Services, and Duke Divinity School.
