Dr Kathryn Mannix

October 19, 2019

Last year we read a beautiful book called With the End in Mind: dying, death and wisdom in an age of denial, by Dr Katherine Mannix. This beautiful collection of stories on death and the process of dying captivated us as an important conversation for society. These are ideas that shape our understanding of dying, and even impact the way we live.

We invited Dr Kathryn Mannix to come to New Zealand and speak to us about her 30+ years of experience in palliative care. This podcast is a recording of her public lecture in March 2019. To hear more go to www.maxim.org.nz/mannix/
