Betsy Barton, MPH, has lived in Durham for 38 years and is committed to educating people in the community about dealing proactively with issues of serious illness, dying and grief. One of her favorite places is the Eno River, where she has processed many a loss herself–and seen remarkable critters along the way. She currently works part-time at Duke on research projects related to end of life.
