Most Americans are fearful of death! And our collective resistance to talking about is in the way of making compassionate care increasingly available. Lisa talked with Dr. Sandy Buchman --who was her mother's home hospice doctor-- about being a life-long learner and creating a free student-run highschool with other dropouts, how birth and death are natural and should be seen as community events, and using his Super Power of Compassion in Action in his work supporting the dying and their families in their homes and on the streets.

“I see birthing and dying not so much as medical events but as social events.”
“I base everything on the principle of autonomy.”
