End Well is a first of its kind gathering of design, tech, healthcare and activist communities with the goal of generating human-centered, interdisciplinary innovation for the end of life care.
This single-day symposium’s fast-paced agenda of provocative minds and empathic priorities promises a unique immersion in the cultural, clinical and systems issues and opportunities relating to the end of life experience – and marks the beginning of a movement to actively change our relationship to living and dying.

Design + Technology
How can we apply empathic design principles across the entire spectrum of the end of life experience? How might emergent technologies offer new propositions for models of care?
Health Care: How can we align 21st-century health system goals of better health outcomes and high-quality, cost-effective care with a fulfilling end of life experience for everyone?
Community: What are today’s cultural, spiritual and traditional belief systems and practices that might more fully empower our relationship with mortality?
Be a part of End Well’s interdisciplinary mix: Reimagine the end of life experience in the company of fellow entrepreneurs, designers, technologists, health care providers, patients, activists, journalists, policymakers, developers, artists, caregivers and other great minds engaged with this vitally important movement.
End Well speakers are pushing boundaries, questioning the status quo, inspiring possibilities.
