“We all are going to die. We can plan for that.”
Dr. Jack McBride, UNC-Chapel School of Medicine
Episode 14: Dr. Jack McBride
Dr. McBride is a geriatric specialist practicing in Chapel Hill, NC. With over 34 years of experience in geriatric medicine, he is well-versed on the complexities that arise each day as a result of ill-planned or non-existent preparations to outline one’s personal end of life choices. In his field of medicine, Dr. McBride oversees many patients who have no legal documentation on how they wish to die. He does his best to support the family members through the process of making difficult decisions on behalf of the patient almost every day.
Unfortunately, many of us delay filling out these forms and never begin end of life conversations with family until a healthcare crisis occurs. Dr. McBride wants to change that.
