INFORMATION, POINTS-OF-ACCESS, AND PATHWAYS

This page contains information to support End of Life and Death Scholars in their personal health and longevity.


As people who research dying, death, and grief/bereavement, we require resources to continue living our lives with our health and well-being in mind. This is a small step in that direction; Please check back for new resources on a regular basis (we will continue to add to this page over time).
