Cheryl Jones, Host of Good Grief on the Voice America Health and Wellness Channel, will present a concurrent session at the Association for Death Education and Counseling Conference April 10 in San Antonio, Texas. Her topic, Death and the LGBT Community: When Culture is Not Defined by Country, intersects her vast experience as a counselor with her personal experience losing her beloved at the age of 42. How does the history of oppression effect LGBT people at the end of life? And what about the adaptive responses many LGBT people have made to rejection? Will their “family of friends” be accepted as family by the health care system? And how do we make sure that our health care environments are not just tolerant, but rather fully embracing?
