Honoring Choices Minnesota
invites the communities of Faribault and Owatonna to attend The Convenings on Tuesday, June 13 from 6:30-8 p.m. at
Medford High School. Free to the public,
the event will feature music, storytelling and
meaningful conversations about living and dying well with MPR’s Cathy Wurzer
and special guests from both communities. The Convenings builds on two significant initiatives:Honoring
Choices Minnesota, a state-wide effort to engage Minnesota families in
advance care planning, and an award-winning series of broadcasts and book We Know How This Ends: Living While Dying co-authored by journalist Cathy Wurzer and Dr.
Bruce Kramer. The book chronicles Bruce Kramer’s life who died in
2015 after living for five years with ALS.
