She hosts Death Café on the first Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm. Death Café is a "social franchise" with a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It's a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session with the aim of educating and helping others become more familiar with the end of life.
