On the eve of his book launch, Regional Hospice and Palliative Care (RHPC) hosted Dr. BJ Miller, who has dedicated his career to putting the patient focus back in end-of-life care. He has been profiled in the New York Times and interviewed by Oprah on Super Soul Sunday. His 2015 TED Talk, “What really matters at the end of life” has garnered over 9 million views, launching him onto the national platform.
After touring Regional Hospice’s in-patient Center for Comfort Care and Healing, Miller spoke to an audience of 125 guests, including Regional Hospice staff and volunteers, local palliative care nurses and social workers and supporters of the agency. “It is a pleasure to be here, among friends,” he said. “I like architecture and design and I know that the environment of care matters so, so much. This Center is a special place. I know because I’ve seen most of the ones that exist in this country and this is, indeed, extremely special.”
“We are thrilled to host BJ Miller at our Center whose life’s work regarding changing the culture of dying aligns with our mission and values,” said Cynthia Emiry Roy, President & CEO of Regional Hospice and Palliative Care. “Our shared commitment to creating meaningful conversations about death – and living as we die – enables us to support and empower people through something that we will all one day experience.”
