I am so grateful that Dr. Sunita Puri @sunitapurimd agreed you do this interview with me not once, but twice as I screwed up the first recording. 😬🤦♀️ I was so moved not only by Dr. Puri’s calm demeanor but her words which are magical to listen to as she talks about how we can contemplate death in a way that makes life special every day.
Dr. Puri Is the Medical Director of the Palliative Medicine Service at Keck Hospital and Norris Cancer Center of the University of Southern California, where she also serves as Chair of the Ethics Committee.
Sunita is the author of That Good Night: Life and Medicine in the Eleventh Hour, a critically acclaimed literary memoir examining her journey to the practice of palliative medicine, and her quest to help patients and families redefine what it means to live and die well in the face of serious illness.
It was as beautiful to read and filled with so many incredibly thoughtful quotes that really spoke to me as I journey through life. -
LOVE, AMY 💫
