History of Caring for the Dead

Over the decades, how we have cared for and dealt with our dead has evolved. Changed by science, society’s view of death and dying, and the evolution of funerals as an industry. Jonathon DeHart, Program Chair of Mortuary Science at Ivy Tech Community College will take us through the ever-changing ways we have cared for the dead.
