There is a public health crisis that touches all of us: people dying badly. Without knowing our options, we become subject to what Dr. Jessica Nutik-Zitter calls the “end-of-life conveyor belt”; when mechanization and protocol override personal preference and collaborative decision-making. Join Dr. Zitter as she explores the question; “What do we really want from ourselves, our loved ones and those entrusted with our care when it comes to death?”
