Humanism in End of Life

End of life is something that touches all of us—and yet, it is something that's rarely discussed. By breaking down these barriers and fears in discussing this topic, we are able to more fully explore what end of life means as humanists and the resources available for humanists in British Columbia, such as Medical Assistance in Dying. 

In this panel, our speakers Jennifer Mallmes and Cindy Oxenbury will share their experiences and perspectives on dying with dignity in B.C., and what resources they see as crucial for those in need. 

Jennifer Mallmes is co-director of the End of Life Doula Association of Canada. Prior to her work over the past five years as a doula, she was a palliative care worker. Currently, she is the instructor of the End of Life Care Doula Certificate program at Douglas College in Coquitlam, B.C.

As president of the Memorial Society of British Columbia, Oxenbury is experienced in ensuring those navigating the end of their lives have access to fair, affordable services and resources.
