Furman hosts Georgetown University’s Daniel Sulmasy in ‘Spirituality and End-of-Life Care: What I Learned from Fred’
November 2 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Daniel Sulmasy, director of Georgetown University’s Kennedy Institute of Ethics, will speak on the Furman University campus Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 6:30 p.m. in Daniel Memorial Chapel. His talk, “Spirituality and End-of-Life Care: What I Learned from Fred,” is the Charles H. Townes Lecture Series in Faith and Reason. Fred’s journey was formative in Sulmasy’s thinking. His unique yet universal end-of-life narrative is the vehicle for conveying his philosophy of patient care. Fred’s last days provided insight on the choices that physicians must often make – or sometimes ignore – perhaps to the detriment of all concerned. After his talk, Sulmasy will entertain questions and elaborate further on the personal, theological, and ethical dimensions of the issues that are part of caring for the dying as well as other patients.
Sulmasy is a senior research scholar at Georgetown. His research interests include both theoretical and empirical investigations of the ethics of end-of-life decision-making, ethics education, and spirituality in medicine. The public is invited to attend.
