Death cafe will be a vital outlet for those in the medical professions and otherwise to discuss about death, whether it be personal stories or abstract theories. We have all had death affect our lives and have thought about death in the context of our patient's illness and mortality or have grappled with it in a human way when it affects our family and friends. We have a somewhat unique perspective as well in being present at the intersection of a person's life when it meets death.

Though this death cafe is hosted by medically oriented facilitators, there will be no themes or objectives to the meeting and all members of the community are welcome to come participate!

About Tulane Narrative Medicine
Narrative Medicine is an opportunity for those in the health care field to exercise our creative/literary/artistic sides. We meet monthly to pick a piece of art (literature, poetry, painting, songs, etc) to read out loud with one another, discuss, and write to a prompt. It incorporates interpretation of narrative texts and building creative writing and storytelling skills.
Narrative Medicine at Tulane has been championed by Rachel Hammer, a second year internal medicine and psychiatry resident, who learned of the narrative medicine way while at Mayo Medical School. Nithya Ravindran, second year psychiatry resident, will be organizing the death cafe portion of narrative medicine meetings.
