30th Annual Jonathan J. King Lecture, When Breath Becomes Air: A Conversation with Lucy Kalanithi
The Jonathan J. King Lectureship was established in 1991 to encourage the compassionate and humane care of all patients. It is a part of Stanford University Medical Center’s mission to enhance patient treatment and the art of caring.
Dr. Lucy Kalanithi is Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at the Stanford University School of Medicine and an advocate for culture change around healthcare value with particular focus on end-of-life care, caregiving and clinician wellness. She serves on leadership boards for the American College of Physicians, the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care and TEDMED. She is the widow of Dr. Paul Kalanithi, author of the #1 New York Times-bestselling memoir When Breath Becomes Air, which was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and translated into more than 40 languages, and for which she wrote the epilogue.
