Physicians Facing Mortality

  • Tue, November 13, 2018
  • 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
  • Salem Convention Center

Stanford internist Lucy Kalanithi is the widow of neurosurgeon and

writer Paul Kalanithi, who was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer at

age 36. Shortly after his diagnosis, Paul wrote about his 

transformation from doctor to patient, and explored what makes life 

worth living in the face of death in his poignant memoir When Breath 

Becomes Air.

After Paul died in 2015, Lucy completed his memoir and wrote its

powerful epilogue. As a caregiver for her husband during all phases

of his illness and as a practicing physician and a thinker on healthcare

value, Lucy is dedicated to helping others choose the health care and

end-of-life experiences that best align with their values.
