SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Passare, Inc., a trusted and relevant source for End-of-Life planning and management, today announced strong consumer interest and momentum stemming from its new Expert Partner Interview Series, which kicked off in July. Featuring insightful interviews with End-of-Life (EOL) subject matter experts on a range of relevant topics, the series launched with the first three interviews featured on Passare.com, to be followed by five additional interviews in the coming months. The series is intended as a way to introduce Passare readers to a variety of Passare experts who actively participate and provide counsel on End-of-Life.
Helping guide families through one of life's most important passages, Passare launched in late June of this year, with the mission of easing the emotional, financial, and logistical burden by facilitating difficult End-of-Life conversations and decisions. Supplementing the company's growing library of content—ranging from articles and how-to-guides to checklists and FAQs—the Expert Partner Interview Series helps families educate themselves and make thoughtful decisions on pre-arrangement planning and related EOL topics.
The transcripts for the first three Expert Interviews can be found on www.passare.com/resources/experts:
