While we give considerable care and attention to specific milestones in life, such as one’s birth, we tend to view another part of life—our own or a loved one’s inevitable death—with considerable trepidation and fear. Dr. Philippa (Pippa) Hawley hopes to change how we look at living well with the possibility of dying, a field of medical and social-emotional support known as palliative care.
