Featured Guest Speaker:  Lucy Kalanithi, MD, FACP

Physician and Widow of the late Dr. Paul Kalanithi,

Author of the NYT #1 Bestseller

"When Breath Becomes Air"

 

Faculty, staff, and students from the One Jefferson family are invited to attend keynote presentation and discussion that will kick off the  5th Annual Palliative Care Spring Symposium at no charge.  This group includes Thomas Jefferson University and Hospitals, Abington Health, Aria, Kennedy and Sidney Kimmel Cancer Network.

A special feature of this year's symposium is extensive time to hear and talk with Dr. Lucy Kalanithi, MD, FACP, the widow of the late Dr. Paul Kalanithi, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, When Breath Becomes Air, for which she wrote the epilogue. At this cross-section of her career as a medical professional and her personal experience, standing alongside her husband during life, diagnosis, treatment and death, Dr. Kalanithi highlights both meaning in medicine as well as end of life care. This perspective enhances the context of discussions throughout the day, adding depth and take home pearls that participants can put into their own practices.

While there is no charge for this special Palliative Care Grand Rounds, you must preregister, and provide documentation of your affiliation with Jefferson.  You will be asked to provide your Jefferson campus key or the name of your affiliated institution.

For those Jefferson members who wish to attend the full day's symposium, please register by clicking here.  

** Note there may be a fee for Jefferson attendees for the full day.**
