Dying Dialogues 2017
Lucy Kalanithi, M.D., is the widow of the late Dr. Paul Kalanithi, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling memoir When Breath Becomes Air, for which she wrote the epilogue. An internal medicine physician and faculty member at the Stanford School of Medicine, she completed her medical degree at Yale, her residency at the University of California-San Francisco and a postdoctoral fellowship training in healthcare delivery innovation at Stanford’s Clinical Excellence Research Center. At the cross-section of her career as a medical professional and her personal experience standing alongside her husband during his life, diagnosis, treatment and
death, Lucy Kalanithi has special interests in healthcare value, meaning in medicine, patient-centered care and end-of-life care. She has appeared on PBS NewsHour, NPR Morning Edition and in People magazine and The New York Times.
