Kavod HaMeis for the Healthcare Professional

Elly Gamss writes:
As halachically interested health care professionals, many of us are or will become well versed on the issues that we face in regards to patient care in hospitals. Many seforim and shiurim are available on these subjects.

The issues that arise in the care of a Jewish corpse with and just after passing away in the hospital are not as well known. In fact, as a house officer over the last 2 years I have been in the position on numerous occasions where questions have been posed to me regarding the cleaning up and preparing of a Jewish body before being picked up by a chevra kaddisha. Only some did I know what to answer.

Rabbi Zohn, the head of the Queens Chevrei Kadisha as well as the one at LIJ (where I am in residency) has graciously agreed to give a lecture on the subject of Kavod HaMeis for the healthcare professional.
We have scheduled the shiur for Monday evening June 19th at 7:30 PM at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, NY. The shiur will take place in the Boardroom in the Gurwin Teaching Center. Please feel free to pass this info on to any others who'd be interested. (ie residents, fellows, med students, etc.)
We plan on digitally recording the shiur so that we can make it available to those who can't make it. It should prove to be a useful and informative shiur.
