This photograph is from a collection of images that depicts our evolving culture of death in America, how we emotionally, spiritually, and practically experience mourning, grief, and loss. Our social and cultural environments impact and shape our responses to death and form the basis of traditional rituals as shown in this picture of three women having a picnic in a cemetery in memory of their loved ones.

"The PCEP class was absolutely critical to my being able to finally start a Palliative Care program at my hospital. I have been trying for five year to receive funding for an inpatient PC consult service, without success. PCEP not only gave me great credibility, it also prepared me to be a better clinician and educator. I highly recommend the program to anyone interested in furthering the field of Palliative Medicine."
-Shoshana Helman, MD
