Death By Design


Yvonne Heath, RN

Season 2, Ep. 38

Yvonne Heath is a wife, mother to three children and a nurse since 1988. She has worked in ten different hospitals. As a registered nurse, she has witnessed a grief phobic society, and how our reluctance to talk about, plan and prepare for grief, death and dying causes excessive suffering personally, professionally in life, and at the end of life. 

​She realized that while working as a nurse, she was suffering too. It’s time for change. Yvonne is helping to create this culture of change through her book, her speaking, workshops, social media, radio, television and most recently her “I Just Showed Up” Campaign.

​Yvonne believes when we learn to talk about and plan for grief, something amazing happens; we live more fully and we suffer less at the end of our lives.
