About this Death Cafe
Death Cafe NOLA is an opportunity for the community of New Orleans to come together and discuss the topic of death over some cake and drinks. These quarterly installments of Death Cafe held at Treo is for all members of the community. In the past, people from all walks of life have brought their views, their questions, and their support for one another. As stated in the general model, these meetings do not have an agenda and the discussion is solely dependent on the ideas that people bring. We find that our city itself holds unique perspectives on death that always lead to interesting conversations.
While the facilitators are medically inclined, all members of the community are welcome to this Death Cafe!
About Tulane Narrative Medicine
Narrative Medicine at Tulane was started by Dr. Rachel Hammer, a psychiatry and internal medicine resident, and co-facilitated by Dr. Nithya Ravindran, a psychiatry resident. Both of us identified as creative, literary people before we identified as doctors. Narrative medicine gives us an opportunity to exercise that identity at monthly meetings where we get together to read and discuss a piece of short literary work. As an off-shoot of these meetings, the facilitators wanted to invite the community on a conversation about death and mortality. This is partially due to our own need to discuss death as we experience it in our work but also because we think an ongoing conversation about death is vital for the community.
