Terry  Kaldhusdal - Consider the Conversation

Terry Kaldhusdal - Consider the Conversation

Consider the Conversation: A Documentary on a Taboo Subject is Terry Kaldhusdal's fifth documentary film winning 9 Awards to date. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has written that Terry Kaldhusdal's work is "clear and concise" adding that he has a "passion for learning and a talent for communicating." Columnist Laurel Walker has called his work "A-plus" and stated that he has "a knack for documenting history." As a public school teacher, Terry has traveled across his state and across the country as a speaker to improve our educational system and was honored in 2007 as the Wisconsin State Teacher of the Year.

Fee: Call For Quote

Terry Kaldhusdal's education on end-of-life care began at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. After meeting the President in the Oval Office as the Wisconsin State Teacher of the Year he learned that his brother Pete was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Pete fought the good fight, but died 26 months later. That loss gave birth to an award winning documentary on the American medical culture.

Consider the Conversation: A Documentary on a Taboo Subject is Terry's fifth documentary film and it has won 8 international film awards. His work was once described this way, "Be prepared to be terrified, illuminated, profoundly moved, confronted, comforted, and warmly hugged."

Terry has traveled across the country as a speaker to improve our educational system and the culture in our medical system. He says his goal is simple, to change the American culture. The passion he brings to the classroom is the same passion he brings to the podium.

    "Engaging. Meaningful. Caring. Those are the first three words that come to my mind in regard to our event. Mike and Terry combined to make our time together a memorable experience that helped all in attendance shape their path forward."

    - Wisconsin Chapter of the World Presidents' Organization (WPO)

    "After attending one of their "Unplugged" talks at a state conference, our leadership team felt compelled to bring Terry and Mike to our service area to host a major Theatrical Film Presentation and Community Conversation event. From that night forward, their work and personal message have continued to resonate throughout the medical, faith and lay communities."

    - Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice

    "Our health system had the distinct honor of working with Mike and Terry to premiere their film in suburban Milwaukee. The positive energy in the theater that night was palpable as evidenced by the sold out show, standing ovation and hundreds of requests for advance directives. The experience was the first in a series of events that has begun to change the culture of end-of-life care in our organization and throughout Wisconsin."

    - ProHealth Care Clinic Division

    "Mike Bernhagen's introduction and presentation mesmerized our conference audience and set a perfect tone for the thought-provoking documentary, Consider the Conversation, which raises profound questions about the long-avoided topic of healthcare decision making at end-of-life."
