Rest in peace, Dr. Paul Kalanithi

I never met Stanford neurosurgeon Dr. Paul Kalanithi, but was moved by his writing and am saddened that he has died from lung cancer. It’s not only that we are roughly the same age and I also have a young child. Dr. Kalanithi had a unique perspective on life and medicine. Spend some time watching this lecture on hospice and palliative care by Drs. Timothy Quill and Kalanithi. All of us who work in health care should engage with these issues. We rarely do.
