Today’s guest is Dr. Sunita Puri, the American born daughter of immigrants. She was a passionate but unsatisfied medical student. Noticing the very little time she actually spent with patients she was conflicted about becoming a doctor until she had the opportunity to intern with a palliative care physician. That led her to specialize in the new field that translates the border between medical intervention and quality-of-life care. Interweaving stories of Puri’s family and the patients she cares for, her book, That Good Night – Life and Medicine in the 11th hour, is about the role of medicine in helping us to live and die well, arming readers with information that will transform how we communicate with our doctors about what matters most to us.
