From 4:30 pm
Join Sam Harrington as he discusses his book, "At Peace: Choosing a Good Death After a Long Life." This is an authoritative, informative, and reassuring guide on end-of-life care for our aging population.
This book is informed by Dr. Samuel Harrington's own experience with the aging and deaths of his parents and of working with patients for more than thirty years. Dr. Harrington came to understand that the American health-care system wasn't designed to treat the aging population with care and compassion. His work as a hospice trustee and later as a hospital trustee drove his passion for helping patients make appropriate end-of-life decisions.
