Recording: #DeathTok: How Gen Z is Reimagining Grief and Loss, Mar 15, 2023

Young Americans are all too familiar with death. Overdoses. Suicides. School shootings. For the next generation, these phenomena are daily trending topics. It's only natural that people under 25 have developed radically different perspectives on death from previous generations. These generations are not paying for obituaries in a newspaper. They are engaging with loss in new ways, through creators, especially on TikTok, where #DeathTok posts have been viewed billions of times. Join hospicenursejulie, nurse and TikTok phenom, alongside creator economy architect Bing Chen in a conversation with Jesse Moss, of the award-winning Experience Camps, which serves grieving children, and Life is Beautiful founder and Chptr CEO, Rehan Choudhry in a conversation about death and how with remember.
