Examined Life Conference

Mar 27th, 2012

In April 2012, Ms. Jacobs will lead a panel entitled “End of Life Narratives: Lessons for Living, Caring, & Letting Go” at the The Examined Life Conference sponsored by the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. With her on the panel will be Marsha Hurst, PhD (from Columbia University’s Narrative Medicine Program) and Larry D. Cripe, MD (a leukemia specialist at the Indiana University School of Medicine). The panel will draw upon narratives by patients, families, and clinicians to explore how singular end of life stories may lead to universal insights about the ways in which we choose to die or care for the dying.
