DEBRIEF of Theater of War
June 2 | 6-7pm PDT
Healthcare workers are also invited to attend a “debriefing” session after the performance, in order to share and deepen our understanding of the issues raised and “find our vocabulary” to express and explore the complexity of the subjects of our time. This event will be held on zoom and is co-sponsored by the UCSF MERI Center for Education in Palliative Care and Stanford Palliative Care and Medicine and the Muse Programs.
