On Friday, Sept. 29, Neimeyer, will lead Hospice of Davidson County’s Sixth Annual Professional Conference on Grief and Loss from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The conference will focus on how death may end a life, but not necessarily a relationship.

The author of over 500 articles and book chapters, he is currently working to advance a more adequate theory of grieving as a meaning-making process.

Both the free workshop and conference are approved for continuing education credits via The Association for Death Education, the Counseling and the North Carolina Board of Funeral Service and the National Board for Certified Counselors.

Both events will be located at the Mary. E. Rittling Conference Center at Davidson County Community College, 297 DCCC Road, Thomasville, N.C.
