About this Death Cafe

Have you always been curious about what a Death Cafe is, but were afraid to ask?  Ever felt intimidated by being in a room full of experienced sages on such a dense subject?


The future nurses - the people most likely to be present in your moment of death - feel the same.  


Palliative Care Interest Group of Johns Hopkins School of Nursing would like to invite you to an evening of honest conversation about death.  In all of humanity's timidness and clumsiness around this subject, come find a comfortable space for a talk within our vulnerabilities as we venture into a career where we shall encounter your deaths and ours.


Whatever that end may be, we will face it together.


About Palliative Care Interest Group of Johns Hopkins School of Nursing

Johns Hopkins School of Nursing Palliative Care Interest Group Leadership 

Paul Kang

Paul is a former EMT who now works in ICU in nursing, keeping death as a familiar companion in life and career.  He is the one with the odd filling you just can't figure out in a box of chocolate.


Sasha Barnes

Sasha is a global nomad who is settling in to live in Maryland.  She is graduating from Hopkins Nursing School in May, and plans to work with older adults.  She has seen different cultures approach death and wants to find ways to talk about it more easily and naturally here in US.


Leah Eickhoff

Leah is a soon-to-be nurse particularly interested in practicing palliative care in emergency depts. and intensive care units.  She's originally from New Hampshire and is happiest when in motion, whether running, dancing, or taking her life into her hands as she bikes around Baltimore on her trusty neon-green hybrid.
