Join Professor Bernard Sussman, MD, Professor of Clinical Medicine and Medical Humanities, Division of Palliative Care, Medical Humanities and Bioethics, and General Medicine and the University of Rochester Medical Center for a conversation about medical ethics in practice.  Dr. Sussman will address how the Hippocratic tradition and modern bioethics influence medical decision making at the borders of life and death.  Elements of ethically and medically sound shared decision making will be explored.
