In Awe of Being Human

~Part of the End-of-Life Conversation Series~

Join TNS Host Michael Lerner for a conversation with Dr. Betsy MacGregor, cancer survivor, retired medical doctor, author, and founding board member of Enso House, a hospice residence providing compassionate, holistic care for terminally ill patients and their families.

From decades of work as a hospital-based physician and end-of-life researcher, and from her own experience as a cancer patient, Dr. MacGregor has come to view illness and death as profound teachers that carve out in us a deeper understanding of what it means to be human. Now retired from clinical practice and living in the Pacific Northwest, Dr. MacGregor remains active as a writer, speaker, and founding Board Member of Enso House. She is author of  In Awe of Being Human, a book that shares some of the remarkable experiences that being a doctor led her to witness and participate in.
