On Thursday, November 6, 2008, WTIP’s First Thursday Community Conversation presented “From a Good Life to a Good Death” – the hospice idea and what it means in Cook County. The WTIP news department assembled a knowledgeable panel to help listeners better understand end-of-life issues and the alternatives available locally.
Dr. Sandy Stover is a leader in the local hospice movement. She was joined by Pastor Dale McIntire of Cornerstone Community Church, as well as local businessperson and hospice volunteer Sue Hakes. Roxy Sherer from the Grand Portage Reservation and local attorney Leigh Mathison rounded out the panel.
