In her thoughtful piece, Kelly Kiernan Largey remembers her late husband who opted out of discussing his wishes for end-of-life.

This month we’re encouraging all those who are working to spread the importance of conversations across your community to network and connect with each other! One way to do this is to explore and put your pin on our Conversation Champions Map! This map was designed to help you find other groups to connect with, providing a network of support for each other. Additionally, we invite you to join our Conversations Champions Discussion Group. This group aims to foster insightful conversations and acts as a virtual learning platform to share ideas, questions and connections.
“The Conversation Project emphasizes having a conversation on values — what matters to you, not what‘s the matter with you.”
– Ellen Goodman, Co-Founder & Director
