Grief as His Guide

In this episode, we meet Dr. Joseph D. Stern and learn about his remarkable journey from neurosurgeon to caregiver and back to neurosurgeon. He is the author of the powerfully raw, incredibly insightful, and tremendously moving New York Times essay "Grief as My Guide: How My Sister Made Me a Better Doctor" in which talks about his sister Victoria's diagnosis of acute leukemia, her unsuccessful bone marrow transplant, and her death.
