Prioritizing the wholeness of each person, BJ Miller helps us envision a redesigned end of life clinical and cultural landscape that makes space for lessons of loss and cuts across age and economic barriers. Embracing the cross-pollination of varied expertise and personal values, BJ’s perspective as a hospice and palliative care physician, and informed by his own lived experience, encourages new lines of thinking that are individually authentic and enriched by wit, compassion and daring.
