 “What is an End-of-Life Doula?” Wednesday, Aug 1, 1 pm. The presentation is designed to raise community awareness regarding the End-of-life Doula movement.  An End of Life Doula, or Death Doula, is a non-medical professional that provides holistic support for the dying and their loved ones before, during, and after death.  Trained in the various end of life stages, a Doula is able to assist the family with understanding the natural processes providing while providing comfort and support.   A Doula differs from a hospice nurse in that the nurse is a medical professional that is fully trained in end of life care.  Together they provide the complete array of services to allow a person to have a positive passing.  The presentation will be followed by a Questions and Answers session. Call 860-763-7425 to register.

TED Talk, Aug 2, 10:30 am. Can I Have Your Brain? The Quest for Truth on Concussions and CTE. Something strange and deadly is happening inside the brains of top athletes -- a degenerative condition, possibly linked to concussions, that causes dementia, psychosis and far-too-early death. It's called chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, and it's the medical mystery that Chris Nowinski wants to solve by analyzing brains after death. Hear more from this ground-breaking effort to protect athletes' brains -- and yours, too.
