Lecture: David Servan Schreiber's life and legacyTuesday, May 8, 8pm - Books & Books, 265 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables

What is a good death? How can we be empowered by the challenge of trying to die “well”, while losing the medical battle? How can we prepare for death while we’re still healthy? Renowned psychiatrist and international bestselling author, Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, shared in his latest book, Not The Last Goodbye, his experience of living through a grave illness and his state of mind as he faced death. As a specialist in care for the terminally ill, an advocate of patient empowerment, and a 19 year brain cancer survivor, Dr. Servan-Schreiber’s testimony is uniquely authoritative. He candidly discusses the daily trials of being gravely ill, how he found spiritual solace, and how to remain “in life” until the end. Dr. Servan-Schreiber died peacefully last July, surrounded by friends and family, while listening to his favourite music as he had wished and planned. His brother, Franklin, will be presenting the book and will share the lessons he learned from being a care giver to his brother.
