Issue #4: Videoconference Alert


1. Videoconference: What, When and Where

2. Help Us Grow This Campaign

1. Videoconference: What, When and Where

SAVE THIS DATE: April 18 from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. ET!

You are invited to participate in the Community Leadership Training Videoconference for the ON OUR OWN TERMS: MOYERS ON DYING outreach campaign.

The live call-in program will focus on deepening dialogue and creative ways to take action on end of life issues. It will feature video segments and panels of experts who can answer questions about the broad issues and how to effect change in a local community.

It is an opportunity for healthcare professionals, members of community-based groups, religious groups, and national organizations engaged in the movement to build on prior outreach efforts including the Leadership Training Conference in September 1999 and the national briefing in January.

It will present basic principles of community-coalition building and assessment and focus on the "Taking Action" component of the outreach.

The videoconference can be viewed through a satellite downlink at host sites including public television stations, hospitals, and county organizer seats.

The national videoconference will be followed by local discussions among the attendees. Participants will break into groups to discuss local outreach in their communities, share ideas, and strategize on next steps.

  • To attend the videoconference, check out our national list of host sites.

  • To register as a host site, go to our online registration form, or contact Mari Cossaboom (, Pat McGann ( at Thirteen/WNET New York. Or call (212) 560-2002.
