In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Altru’s Hospice program will host presentations Thursday by Ken Ross, son of Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross.
Ross, a professional photographer, will review his mother’s life and the principles that inspired her to enter the field of medicine, specifically end-of-life care.
In her best-selling book, “On Death and Dying,” Kubler-Ross defined the concept that people go through stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance — as they face their mortality.
The concept is accepted internationally, and her book is widely studied in most major medical, nursing and psychology programs.
The free public presentation is set for 6:30 p.m. at the Empire Arts Center in downtown Grand Forks. A social hour I set to begin at 5:30 p.m.
Health sciences students are invited to hear Ross’s presentation from 12 to 1 p.m. at the UND medical school’s Keller Auditorium.
