Death Cafe in Gig Harbor, Washington with Dr. Kristine Kevorkian

April 10th, 4:00pm
Panera Bread, 4751 Point Fosdick Dr NW, Gig Harbor, WA 98335

Kristine Kevorkian says:

The main reason for why I'm participating/conducting a Death Cafe is to help people understand death and perhaps share a little death education. I'd like to be present to answer questions people have about the process of dying and grieving. There are so many questions people have about death but there isn't a place to ask those questions until now with the Death Cafe!
Kristine A. Kevorkian, PhD, MSW, holds a doctoral degree in thanatology, the study/science of death and dying. She has worked as a deputy coroner, hospice medical social worker offering emotional support and counseling to terminally ill patients, including young children to elders, and their families, and in academia, lecturing and teaching classes on aging, trauma, end-of-life care, death, bereavement, grief and loss to medical and mental health professionals and students. Dr. Kevorkian combined her passion for thanatology with her love of whales and the environment through her research on environmental grief® and ecological grief®. She has presented this research in the United States and abroad. Dr. Kevorkian provides one-on-one support, educational workshops, seminars, and writes on the subjects of dying/death, grief/loss, animal companion loss, and grief related to environmental loss and destruction.


  1. Any chance of a Death Cafe in Seattle...the Union Bay Area?

  2. Yes, if there could be a Death Café in Seattle or Everett that would be helpful.

  3. Is Kristine Kevorkian related to Dr. Kervorkian? And I think that this is a Fabulous idea. Hope to see it in South Florida- the home of so many Seniors!

  4. I would love to see/be part of a Death Cafe in the Seattle area. I have worked in Medical Social Work for over 13 years and feel strongly that there is a need for this in the community.
