Roots & Roads is committed to educating the community about end-of-life issues. We host an End-of-Life (EOL) Community Conference focusing on different themes each year related to EOL care and support, such as palliative and hospice care, cultural traditions around death, burial practices, and grief. Due to COVID-19 the conference has pivoted from an in-person conference to a virtual workshop series, inviting end-of-life professionals to speak on a variety of topics.

Virtual workshops are free for all to attend.

Additionally, Roots & Roads provides the Five Wishes, advance directive document, free of charge to the community.
