LIFE MATTERS MEDIA STAFF

End Well speakers are pushing boundaries and inspiring possibilities.

End Well has announced two additional innovators who will speak at the nonprofit’s 2018 symposium.

Dr. Shoshana Ungerleider founded End Well

End Well is a one-of-a-kind gathering of design, tech, health care and activist communities with the goal of generating human-centered, interdisciplinary innovation for the end of life experience. This year’s event will be held Dec. 6 in San Francisco.

The symposium’s fast-paced agenda of provocative minds and empathic priorities promises a unique immersion into the cultural, clinical and systems issues and opportunities relating to the end of life experience.

Dr. Shoshana Ungerleider, a hospice and palliative care physician, advocate and philanthropist, spearheads the effort.

The speakers:

  • Alicia Garza is an activist and co-founder of Black Lives Matter, a movement fighting for equality and justice for all. Garza’s writings and interviews have appeared in Time, The Guardian, Essence, and The New York Times, among other influential news organizations.
  • Dr. Maya Shankar is an internationally recognized authority on how to use insights about human behavior to improve decision-making. Shankar founded and was chair of the White House Social and Behavioral Sciences Team under President Barack Obama and was the first-ever behavioral science adviser to the United Nations.

The organization announced its first batch of 2018 speakers earlier this year. Life Matters Media co-founder and president Randi Belisomo spoke last year at the first End Well symposium.
