Fairview Oxboro Clinic
600 W. 98th St.
Bloomington, MN
Grief is a natural human experience that every person encounters at some time in their lives. New research on bereavement tells us that we are  "wired" for healing and that grief need not overwhelm us. If this is true, why does grief hurt so much? Come and learn about the normal experience of grief, how healing happens, and where to find hope in the process. Join us. Registration is required. Please call Chris Dooley-Harrington at 952-885-6197.

Fairview Youth Grief Services
