The Annual Douglas West Memorial Lecture

The Annual Douglas West Memorial Lecture was endowed by Susie West in memory of her late husband, and in honor of Diane Meier, MD, who cared for him in his final years. The lecture is now in its 20th year. Previous speakers have included notable health care professionals such as Dr. Christine Cassel, Dame Cecily Saunders and Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee, and authors and journalists such as Anna Quindlen, Gail Sheehy and Amy Berman.

This year, we were incredibly pleased to have R. Sean Morrison, MD, present the lecture. Dr. Morrison is the Director of the Hertzberg Palliative Care Institute, Co-director of the Patty and Jay Baker National Palliative Care Center and Director of the National Palliative Care Research Center. We invite you to view this lecture and past lectures through the links below.
