The Game Of Death

Dawn M. Gross, MD is a physician, scientist, and producer. She holds a combined MD and PhD from Tufts University School of Medicine and the Sackler School of Biomedical Sciences.

Dawn’s writing and her distinguished medical career share one aim: to show us how we can live fully until we die. She is determined, both through her writings and by example, to improve how the medical community and medical protocol communicate with people about their prognoses, even if they are dire, so as to help patients and families deal with the inevitable outcome with honesty and dignity.

In the end, Dawn asserts, public policy must acknowledge and question incentives that prolong life with no appreciation for the impact on how we die.
