21st Annual Rosemary Flanigan Lecture


Wednesday, August 12, 2015
St. Joseph Medical Center, Alex George Auditorium, Building D
 
David CasarettDavid Casarett, MD, our guest speaker at the 2015 Flanigan Lecture, is the author of Shocked: Adventures in Bringing Back the Recently Dead. In it, he chronicles this history of resuscitation and reveals just how far science has come, with examples ranging from bizarre to riveting.
 
“The unexplored questions underlying every chapter of Shocked,” said Susan Okie in her Washington Post review, “show how eager we are to grasp at any treatment, however marginal that promises to prolong life, and why so many people have such difficulty confronting the reality of death or talking about their wishes with their families.”
 
Details about the lecture and related programs will be available soon.
