Play • 37 min

The COVID-19 pandemic has made everyone think about the possibility of death. However, most of us still choose to avoid conversations with our family about what our last wishes would be. To help us learn how to start those tough conversations, we turn to Dr. BJ Miller, a longtime hospice and palliative medicine physican whose TED Talk on what matters most at the end of life has been viewed more than 11 million times.

He’s the founder and president of a groundbreaking new organization called, Mettle Health, which provides personalized consultations with patients and caregivers who need help dealing with the practical, emotional and existential issues that come with serious illness and disability.
