There is no easy way to approach end-of-life decisions. We all want to live well and die peacefully.
On January 16th, Dr. Sam Harrington will discuss his new book, At Peace, and steps we can take to ensure the end of life is as comfortable and loving as possible. At Peace has been called an invaluable road map for those facing critical decisions themselves as well as for their friends and family. A Harvard graduate, a physician for over 30 years, a hospice trustee, and a hospital trustee, Dr. Harrington has seen firsthand that the American healthcare system isn’t designed to treat aging and dying with care and compassion.
This is a special opportunity for you as well as for your family members and friends: Dr. Harrington is coming to Houston for this event only, sponsored by the Community for Conscious Aging and The Jung Center. His books will be for sale.
