Dr. Sam Harrington spent over thirty years in clinical practice at Sibley Hospital and developed a passion for helping patients make appropriate end-of-life decisions. He was a hospital and hospice trustee and is the author of the highly praised book "At Peace: Choosing a Good Death After a Long Life."

Dr. Harrington will explain why many older patients undergo painful procedures at the end of life instead of having the better and more peaceful death they deserve. He will outline specific steps that older patients and their healthcare proxies can take to ensure loved ones live their last days comfortably at home and in hospice when further aggressive care is inappropriate.

Open to friends and neighbors. RSVP to for the Zoom link.
