WQED HELPS PUBLIC TACKLE SENSITIVE
END OF LIFE ISSUES IN LIVE TOWN HALL
Program made possible by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield

PITTSBURGH—For those facing the end of their life or preparing for the death of a loved one there are many things to consider. On Thursday, May 19 at 8 p.m. WQED-TV will air a LIVE town hall to address these issues called End of Life: Discussions on Dying and Dignity. Expert panelists will be discussing: advanced care planning; care management; navigating legal issues; securing and understanding palliative and hospice care; and coping with grief.

Hosted by Michael Bartley, the audience can send in their questions via e-mail in advance of the broadcast to be answered during the End of Life discussions that evening. WQED host and producer Chris Moore will monitor and provide these questions and take some from members of the studio audience to provide to the panelists. To submit a question viewers should go to www.wqed.org

Funding for this program was made possible by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield.
