In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Palliative Manitoba’s Community Outreach & Education Coordinator, Mike Goldberg, began hosting a weekly livestream with various professionals in the community discussing the impact of a global pandemic and social distancing on the dying, their loved ones and the people caring for them.

As we adapt to the changes that the global health crisis presents, we thought that a new way of engaging with the community is necessary. Please join Mike Goldberg, Community Outreach and Education Coordinator as he talks with retired Registered Nurse and Palliative Manitoba volunteer, Ellen Jacobs as they discuss how the pandemic has impacted how we grieve the many losses we are experiencing as a community.Live stream: When: April 2, 2020 @ 12pm CSTIf you feel comfortable to do so, we encourage you to write questions and comments about your grief experiences in the comments below and we will try to address them during our conversation. If you are able to participate live, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and leave comments that will be addressed by Mike and his guest. We ask that you respect your fellow community members by not judging their experiences or giving unsolicited advice. Any comments deemed inappropriate will be removed.
